    i got in!!!!!!
    i had a little bit of trouble finding it though, if anyone needs help it's under admission summary and click on "admission letter"
    i'm soooooooooooo relieved!!! now we just have to make sure the aid comes through..... **bites lip**

    Congratulations to both of you. Now you can start dithering about housing, majors, and the logistics of moving in.

    Congratulations to all of you. Now just relax and enjoy high school, cause you have no idea what a change you're in for :-) Good change, but big change.

    Well, Irene, when you dry your eyes, you have to consider: foil, epee, or saber?

    Congratulations. I'm so happy for you all. But don't relax too soon. Smith gets stroppy about severe senioritis...
  • PixieDust8888884PixieDust8888884 Registered User Posts: 5 New Member
    i have gotten a slight case of serioritis....what do they say about it? is it that you must maintain a certain gpa? will they take away aid depending on your grades this and next semester?
    mine aren't AWFUL, but they're not great either....

    they won't adjust your need-based aid (I have no idea about merit-based aid, but most people don't have that anyway). They could conceivably take away your acceptance or start you on academic probation if your grades drop too much, but they'd probably have to drop quite a bit. The rule of thumb I used to hear in high school was you should worry if you go down more than one full letter grade in any class (so if the transcript you submitted to them showed you with a B+ in history, don't go below a C+ for the year), or if you go down in the majority of your classes. But Smith probably doesn't have a hard and fast rule.

    That rule seems a little tough. What if you've always had straight As and then you get a couple of Bs? I doubt colleges would care about that.

    I don't know about EDers but for RD, a few girls were put on academic probation.after sending in their third quarter grades. I certainly wouldn't worry about a few Bs, however.
