    Thank you @YourCollegeMom! Yes, testing is not her thing, unfortunately, but thank you for the positive words.

    Good Luck to your Son and all the other Review Admits!!!
  • YourCollegeMomYourCollegeMom Registered User Posts: 227 Junior Member
    @FingersCrossedAgMom A 25 is actually really good! I know so many people that got in with 23s all the way down to 19s!!! Seriously... blew me away, but I don't know their other stats aside from being review admits.

    Let's talk My Howdy Tabs...anyone have the coveted 6 tabs? We are still sitting with 3.

  • FingersCrossedAgMomFingersCrossedAgMom Registered User Posts: 24 Junior Member
    @YourCollegeMom Wow! That's crazy, and honestly I hadn't heard that. I guess anything can happen! Part of me wants December to get here or even Jan/Feb to get to a decision, but a bigger part wants time to slow down...cherish every moment of her senior year!

    Still 3 tabs on Howdy for my daughter @labegg
  • YourCollegeMomYourCollegeMom Registered User Posts: 227 Junior Member
    I wish @labegg. Holistic reviews won't see tabs til December at the earliest. Unless you are literally on the bubble like 11% and a 29 act. And that's not even a high probability of hearing before dec. Sadly!

    Does anyone know or want to guess (ha!) if top 10.58% is auto admit? We just got final rankings and that's where she sits - ugh! She is taking the SAT this Saturday to see if she can bring her scores up to academic admit level because she knew she was close and her class has been shrinking since the beginning of Junior year. Can't believe she is SO close. I feel like she has a pretty good chance for admittance even if she went into review but MAN, wish we didn't have to wait and take a chance and not I am not completely sure she would go the Blinn Team route when she already has full acceptance and scholarship offers from several other schools.
  • labegglabegg Registered User Posts: 2,456 Senior Member
    @JenniferAggie91. Oh, so close!. There does not seem to be a consensus here on CC. I think the last thing I read was that "officially" it is not but if she has test score anywhere near the academic admit range. She will most likely be admitted. Fingers crossed.

    DD used to say no way to Blinn, but recent grumblings have been very vague, so who knows when push comes to shove next May 1st. She would absolutely pick A&M if it is a full offer, but I still suspect if it is Blinn she will end up at Auburn or LSU. She is also holding out for Clemson which seems to be her 2nd pick at the moment, but I think her chances there are about the same as A&M. That decision doesn't come out until Feb 15 or so.

    DD2016 taught me to never bet on a firm decision until April 30, lol.

    So DD was inducted into several honor societies in the past week or so.. Mu Alpha Theta, Rho Kappa and SNHS. Anyone think it is worth it to bother updating her TAMU application?
  • YourCollegeMomYourCollegeMom Registered User Posts: 227 Junior Member
    @labegg heck yes. Add as much as you can til dec 1st.

    @JenniferAggie91 no worries. She'll get in full admit.
  • JenniferAggie91JenniferAggie91 Registered User Posts: 49 Junior Member
    @AggieMomAgain Thanks for the information! Regarding your daughter doing Blinn Team. Did she have many AP/Dual Credit hours coming in? What is her major and how many classes is she taking at each campus?

    @kcheves WOW, your daughter's stats are outstanding. If only a Texas resident, she wouldn't have to wait very long to hear back. With Engineering, she'll go into holistic review for it as well, so that's a great thing. If she were interested in another major, like business, then it typically fills up in November (before holistic review candidates are admitted). So all Engineering candidates are on equal playing field (exception on early action). I'm assuming she's applying for early action, right? Oct. 15th deadline. Best of luck to her, although it doesn't sound like luck is needed. = )

    Just a correction, Business does NOT only have automatic admit applicants in the accepted students group. They save spots for review candidates, so although there are not many open spots there are always some for reviews.
