Swarthmore College emailed my Counselor two days ago, less than two weeks before their decisions come out, asking for my transcript. Is this a good sign?
It’s not a bad one
I believe that if your counselor never sent your mid-year transcript, then they simply are trying to make an admission decision on an applicant. They use all grades including the first semester of your senior to make a decision and if your counselor never sent it that may be the cause of the email. All I can say is don’t read into it too much, but still remain optimistic about what the future holds! Hope this helps!
