Other thoughts: Better than he thought. He was sure he’d be denied because he didn’t submit his SAT. I guess he still has a chance. Anyone have suggestions for him?

suggestions;
write a LOCI and send to his admissions rep to add to his file.
update with further accomplishments or awards that may come along.
send another LOR.
have your school advocate on his behalf

Thank you! Excellent suggestions.

your’e welcome…I know the feeling.
But good news…I did this for Tufts last and I’m a freshman there now!
Good luck!
