    @akdoxmi Congratulations!

    The fans are definitely necessary (the first few days were 95 degrees and it actually felt like burning)
    I can also help answer questions alongside @thejmarie :)

    @akdoxmi i was wondering where you sent in the essays? Also how did you apply - I saw online that they will start reviewing applications in early January???

    @frgiven you submit them through your application portal. The deadline is 2/15/19, but the sooner you finish the better because it's rolling. Since it's rolling, there is no starting point for review- they address each application as they come.

    @akdoxmi did you apply to SAMS or AP/EA?

    @akdoxmi hi I am noticing that some people like you are receiving acceptances from SAMS early but I read somewhere on the website that rolling decisions begins January 3, 2019? Do you mind giving me some clarification with this #-o

    I re-read the SAMS 2018 thread and saw that we have to upload our transcripts but I cant find where to do it. :(
    Can anyone help? Also I am not taking any APs at the moment because I've only been in the state for 3 months... I have done IB in my previous school but counsellor wanted me to complete the grade 9 courses so here i am stuck with geometry as a 10th grader. I know my chances are really slim, but I still want to give it a try.

    @akdoxmi Have you already told the SAMS people that you are committed to participating? Do you know when you have to notify them by?

    @TheMadScientistX yes I have. I can't see the commitment page since I already submitted it (I can only see that they received it), but I believe there's a suggested date to respond by in there. Does that help?

    @gban2020 Yep, you gotta submit the basic information stuff first (including teacher recs), then you're taking to a page where you can upload essays/transcripts/scores.
