Undoubtedly you have heard about the recent admissions scandal in which authorities say the parents of some of the nation’s wealthiest and most privileged students sought to buy spots for their children at the big-name universities. I can assure you I am as shocked and sickened by this news as you are. It’s unbelievable to think that parents would go to such extremes to get their kids in to the big-name colleges.It’s also hard to grasp that there are people out there like William Rick Singer who are cheating the system.
March is the month when the last of the admissions decisions come rolling in. Most colleges are sending admissions decisions electronically these days, so seniors are anxiously checking their emails or logging into their accounts for each college constantly (some as often as every hour).
Colleges will get your high school transcript, and on it will be your grades from freshman, sophomore and junior years. (Because you won’t have finished your first semester of senior year by the time you’re applying to colleges and sending transcripts).
