Anyway to update information?

<p>I have recently done many noteable things that can be added to my application. is there ever anyway to send say a resume to be considered for admisssion? Thanks!</p>

<p>No need to send a new resume. Just email us the update. Our email addresses are on the application instructions page.</p>

<p>How does this advice jive with the messages from you and the deferred students frequently asked questions instructing that nothing further but second semester grades should be submitted because nothing further will be considered?</p>

<p>I am assuming that the student is a Regular Decision applicant.</p>

<p>Perhaps. But aren't Regular Decision applicants and Deferred Early Action applicants now competing for the same admission offers? And if so, why can Regular Decision applicants send updated information beyond senior-year grades, but Deferred Early Action applicants cannot?</p>

<p>Why? Because the Deans have determined that this is the process. We've asked that updates for deferred files come from the guidance counselors via the MY report.</p>

<p>Please accept this in the spirit in which it is being offered: I mean no disrespect and I certainly do not want to belabor what might seem like a minor point. But since both Deferred Early Action applicants and Regular Decision applicants submit MY Reports and they are competing for the same admission slots, it strikes me as unfair, at best, that Regular Decision applicants can submit additional updated information and Deferred Early Action applicants cannot. Given the holistic review process, it seems entirely possible that updated information submitted by a Regular Decision applicant could provide the edge over an Early Decision applicant who is not permitted to provide such information. And the fact that the Deans have decided that this is the process is somewhat troubling--at least for Deferred Early Action applicants. Wouldn't it be more fair to limit all applicants to supplemental information included on the MY Report? Or doesn't fairness matter in the college admissions process?</p>

<p>We review deferred students' applications more than any others. They had ample opportunities to send updates after they submitted their applications in October. At this point, we have asked that they stop the updates with the MY report.</p>

<p>Dean J,</p>

<p>I am really concerned and frustrated and would love your opinion. My daughter has been a straight A student throughout her entire school career. She also has great SAT scores and many extracurricular activities, and hopefully very good recommendation letters. The problem is that for the past two years she has been very ill, and just recently had to have some more surgery to help with her medical condition. Now, because of her up beat attitude and positive style, you would never know anything was wrong with her. Here is the problem.. Last semester, for the first time ever, she received two C's on her report card, both in AP classes. I know the reason for the drop in grades is that one of the classes was first period, and the other last period. With her illness, these are the worst times of the day for her. Now, the guidance counselor is aware of her condition, but my daughter has refused to let other people know, and therefore, does not get any special treatment. I am sooooo afraid that since the mid year report was sent, the admission committee reviewing her application would think she was a kid with senioritis, and put her in the denial pile. Do you think that if the committee does see this drop in her new grade report she would be automatically denied? Do you have any suggestions? I am so scared that everything she worked so hard for can be taken away in a minute! Thank you for your advice.</p>

<p>Transcripts just list the courses and the grades earned, not the time of day that courses are offered. I would hope that the condition and how it effects the student would be explained in the application or the guidance counselor's recommendation.</p>
