Provisional acceptance?

<p>I just got a letter today from Clemson saying they would like to offer me a provisional acceptance. Not sure of this is must more spam but I'm definitely curious about it. They said if I submitted an application by december 1st they would sent me an official acceptance letter. Is this legit? I haven't even started any college applications yet. This is my senior year btw.</p>


<p>It is probably. Similar system in Cali. If you're in the top 4% of your class after junior year, you're automatically accepted to davis, merced, and a couple of other lower tier UC's. You have to submit an application though, and then you're sent the acceptance letter.</p>

<p>It is legit. A friend of mine got into Clemson under those terms, but ended up going elsewhere.</p>
