Oh wow! Thats so nice! I wish we were in state as well. I dont think any of our colleges here in Georgia do that. Not any that are big enough that my D24 would be interested in anyways.

Quick question - on the website they say not to send official transcript unless asked for but my school will be sending official transcript to all schools I am applying thru the BridgeU system - not sure if it’s ok to send rhe official transcript even if it’s not required to be sent now / anybody ind the same boat?

Yes! Ours does the same thing. Im sure that they will be able to see that they are sent automatically. I dont foresee them seeing it and it actually going against the student.

Two long term ECs, PT job, 100 hours volunteering

Son got invitation after application turned in to honors college. Is this an auto invite to all who apply EA?

I have the same question. Son also received invite to apply to honors college, OOS, slightly higher GPA, slightly lower SATs/

Mine just received an email to apply to honors college, too.

Do they send this to everyone? Or is it selective? Is it indicative of a likely yes for admissions? (Even if not selected for honors).

Tbh my child really doesn’t have much interest in honors college. Idk if it would look bad, though, not to apply.

Applied EA

Just received an email saying we can finalize SAT plan - either confirm SAT score or potentially choose TO instead by Nov 1. Now second guessing and wondering if kiddo should submit SAT score

I think he has a great score. We did TO because my kid although has great stats on everything else does not do the SAT well. So we did TO. In your case, I think his score may help him. I would look back at last years information to decide though.

I think if they have certain stats it gets sent. My son (a sophomore there) did get the invite, my daughter did not (applied a few weeks ago). He applied but did not get into the honors college (which is good b/c he had no interest but thought he “needed” to apply).
