Re: To be in the class or not to be
Do they? With many of next year's senior class not testing or only having taken the ACT/SAT one time their junior year they will have to look at activities and such but it will be interesting to see. Class rank when fully supported by an active schedule will play in but do you really think the 4 year's matters? I know a lot of seniors that couldn't make year 4 work for a number of reasons and it didn't seem to always hurt their admissions.
University admissions consider dedication to an extracurricular for 4 years over class rank and gpa.
Iíve done it before. It didnít open Pandoraís box either. Everyone knew the kid was an unusual circumstance. Side note, that kid was rejected at Northwestern (his top choice) while I had another band student with a much lower class rank (fewer APs), and a lower SAT score who was accepted. Iím not gonna lie, I really enjoyed that moment.
Member of Competing Organization. For the purpose of UIL music competition, a student need not be enrolled in the corresponding music course provided that all other student eligibility requirements are met.
I have a student who is taking every advanced course under the sun. She's number 1 in her class and due to double blocking these advanced classes she has run out of periods for band.
My question is, if she is not enrolled in the band class can I still take her to UIL events?
I've been reading the eligibility requirements but can find an answer so if anyone can link the actual rule that would be great!
