Fall semester grades?

<p>I hear conflicting reports on whether the fall semester senior year grades will be looked at for determining NMF status. The official site says they will, and asks that the transcripts be sent, but some people say that the decisions are made even before the transcripts would be available to look at.</p>

<p>Schools are required to send a transcript in October, so “semester grades” aren’t available at that point…just maybe quarter grades and at some schools, those aren’t available yet, either.</p>

<p>Schools are not asked to send transcripts in dec/Jan…which would be semester grades.</p>

<p>Many schools end their semester at the end of January, yet rejections are sent out the first week of January, so it just doesn’t “add up” that semester grades are used.</p>
