    Yes, her SRAR is done, but I assumed that they would be taking the class rank from the official transcript that the school has to send, not just what she self reported. Is that not the case? I know the school sent it, but I don't know that A&M received it. The red X is still there.

    @momofkinsandbean they ranked my daughter based on her SRAR. Her school does not rank though. From what I understand, the SRAR would be used to rank because it speeds up the process of waiting on official transcripts from the school. It just takes them a few weeks to review the SRAR once it is submitted.

    It appears that they rank based on SRAR, however, if you're in top 10%, at least, it requires the submission of the school's official transcript to validate. My student's app has been complete for a while, so the actual verbiage is gone, but there was some blurb telling him to submit an official transcript (for top 10% rank) when he got his netid, and could login-- TAMU already had his transcript & test scores, they just had to associate them with his app.

    They don't specifically say on the Admissions FAQ for the SRAR, but I get the distinct impression that the SRAR review goes a lot faster if they have your official transcript already. It was a whopping four business days from app submission to "Complete & In Review"--all green checkmarks, including "additional docs requested for admission" (high school transcript & scholarship app), and linked SRAR, until "application complete & in review".

    When did you apply: July 6th
    Class rank: school does not rank, assigned 1st quartile by the university
    GPA: 3.7
    ACT: 27 (33 English, 28 Reading, 23 Math, 24 Science)
    Admission Decision: TBD
    Major/College of Choice: Sport management (College of Education and Human Development)
    I know nobody can be completely sure of odds of admission, but feedback is appreciated. Also, will applying for sport management give me a better chance as a review admit as opposed to applying to Mays or another more popular major? How much of a role does community service play in admissions decisions (I currently have a little over 650 hours and feel like that might be able to boost my chances)

    @zgregory512 Your major is not a factor in being admitted. Being a review applicant, the chance of admission for a review applicant is 20% or less.

    Hi, new student to the forum.
    When did you apply: July 23rd
    Class Rank: Top 25% (ranked by A&M)
    SAT (with Sub Scores): 1460 (R/W: 740; M: 720)
    ACT (with Sub Scores): N/A
    When did you receive your admission decision: Waiting
    Are you an Auto-admit or Academic Admit or Review Admit: Academic Admit
    Major/College of Choice: History
    I'm an out-of-state student, and my rank was determined by A&M using the information in my SRAR. When my AIS checklist finally said that my class rank was complete, it said "Top Quarter" next to class rank, meaning I would be considered an Academic Admit. But now, when I go onto the AIS, it no longer reads "Top Quarter" next to the Class Rank box- it's just blank. The class rank is still checked off, but I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same issue? I hope this doesn't change my ability to get admitted during the first round of letters in September. They shouldn't have changed my rank, as I have above a 4.0 unweighted, but I don't know if this was supposed to happen.

    @Julia2002, one thought-- did you request a transcript from your school? Under "Additional Documents Requested for ADMISSION", do you have a green check mark for "High School Transcript From <Insert your school name>"?

    @nomatter, I did request a transcript from my school, and it shows that A&M received it under the tab "My Documents." However, my school is a non-ranking school, so A&M had to create a rank for me based on my SRAR. It seemed like they already ranked me in the top 25%, but then that ranking stopped appearing a few days ago next to "Class Rank," though that box is still checked off.

    @julia2002, but is the green check mark there for high school transcript? TAMU can show the document as received, without it having been processed yet. It's possible that TAMU received your transcript after assigning your rank based on the SRAR so your rank is being withheld until your transcript is processed. If you have the green check mark, I'd recommend that you use the contact feature in AIS to ask them about it. Use of the SRAR for ranking is new, so we don't really know how it's playing into TAMUs ranking of students from non-ranking schools for academic admit, assured admissions.

    @nomatter, The only box listed "Official High School Transcript" is under "Additional documents required if admitted," and that box is not checked off. However, I think that box is only for the final transcript that needs to be sent at the end of the year once admitted, so I don't think the transcript I sent would qualify for that category anyways. None of the boxes under Documents Required or Requested for Admission read "Transcript." Additionally, my transcript was received about 3 weeks before my class rank was checked off and marked as Top Quarter.

    My daughter will be a review admit. Application is currently complete and in review. Does anyone know when they generally start looking at those applications? She is a Forensic Science major and only applied to 6 schools. She has already been accepted into 5/6 Ole Miss, University of Alabama, UH, SHSU, and UNT. Her first choice is A&M.
