What did admissions say about entry in summer?
That sucks. That just totally sucks, for her and for you. I'm really sorry.
Is there any chance retaking the SAT would help?
It sounds to me like GT admissions is using the SAT as a kind of tie-breaker. GT can afford to be somewhat more selective than they have in the recent past, since now college is a "necessity" for nearly everyone (or viewed that way, anyway). This would generally be a good thing, except for the supremely capable and talented kids that are just barely shut out, like your daughter. How many of us would not be accepted to GT now??? Me for one, for sure.
The master's plan sounds like a good one, though.
Unfortunately bad news. She was given conditional acceptance for the 2015 school year. That is if she maintains a certain GPA and takes at least 30 hours. Problem is she has already taken 60 hours. She is graduating with an associates degree at the same time she graduates high school. She has taken all three calcs, diff. eq., linear algebra, both chemistry classes, and both calc based phys. By the time 2015 rolls around she will be a senior and there will be no need to go the GT.
Her GPA is a 3.75 with those 60 hours. She is only 18. She has done all this while lettering in the competition cheerleading squad for four years, cross country for one year, and track for one year. We are going to try and set up a meeting with admissions at GT, but we have already been warned by the Jr. college she has been attending the last two years that it will probably be a futile exercise.
By the way the jr. college (Middle Ga) has been transferring kids into Tech for over 50 years, so it is not a problem with her coursework not being accepted. Her SAT simply wasn't up to GT standards, and they had several thousand kids apply for the fall semester.
I am deeply depressed. Her only options are to major in EE at UGA or Ga Southern. She has been accepted to both.
Many years ago, they used to have the 2/2 and 3/2 programs at Southern - you go two years at Southern and the last two at Tech and get a degree from Tech or do three at Southern and the last two at Tech and get a degree from both. I knew a few folks who did that. Don't know if that still exists. Southern used to have some pretty strong faculty, particularly in physics, where the department chair had done his undergrad, masters and PhD work at Tech, start to finish, in seven years and was a teetotaling Baptist deacon - and a TKE at Tech.
Wow, that's awesome! Congrats to you, and most importantly to your daughter!Great news. After a few conversations with admissions, she has been accepted for the fall! We have just sent in the admissions fee. I can't wait to see her on the sidelines at our first game!
