Golden Gopher Application
Hi all, my son has routinely had his ACT/SAT test scores sent to UMTC and so we've received a couple of emails back in May and June which stated the following:
"Later this summer you will receive an invitation to apply for admission to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities with the Golden Gopher Application. Because we know you will be busy during your senior year, the application will be personalized to save you time. And when you submit your application, you'll be automatically considered for scholarships and for admission to the University Honors Program."
I know that these are simply promotional emails and are not any indication of how competitive an applicant for admission he will be to CLA. However, given the fact that the Fall 2016 admissions application is now online, I have a couple of questions: (1) based on prior admission cycles, does anyone know when the pre-filled Golden Gopher application is disseminated?; and (2) based on a simple Google search for the term "Golden Gopher application" I learned that in prior years recipients of the application link did not have to pay an app fee; however, there was no reference to not having an application fee in the emails. Does anyone have any insight as to whether I'd have to pay the fee?
Thanks in advance for your responses.
