Senior Group Counseling Meeting (College Application Process) - Shared screen with speaker view
Do kids have to register for the October 14th test?
Seniors will be registered for the SAT with essay, juniors will be registered for the PSAT/NMSQT.
Students do not have to register themselves
where will this be posted to access the links
Do counselor letter recommendation have to be requested through Naviance? Does every counselor give a recommendation that is their particular student?
This presentation will be posted on the South Counseling page.
Students do request teacher letters, but not counselor letters of recommendation. Ours come automatically, but we do need the Junior Information Form completed to do this.
Got it - thx
any idea how deferments by the senior class of 2020 will affect the current senior class with regard to admission?
We have no idea about how deferments will impact admission. Some years, U of M excepts many and then few after deferment, other years, they do the opposite.
I recognize Mrs. Sahutske addressed...focusing in on the GPA value..which one do we reference from the MiStar when submitting applications?
Where do we receive the Naviance "registration code"?
U of M early action deadline is Nov 15, including test scores. Will SAT scores from the Oct 14 test be sent to U of M before Nov 15?
A four week turnaround would be difficult for SAT. I would not count on U of M getting that test score by Nov 15th. Please remember, that U of M is not requiring this test for admission...
Does the application that can be submitted on October 15th include the LORs?
Upvoting Amanda's question on Naviance Registration Code
Yes, your application is not complete unless it includes a teacher letter of rec, if that school requires one.
If you do not have your Naviance registration code, contact your guidance counselor for this.
How many weeks do you think it will take to get the October 14th SAT scores to us? Can we pay to get it expedited?
It normally takes 4 - 6 weeks for an SAT to be scored, but because the entire state may be taking this test the same day, we do not have an answer... you cannot pay extra for an expedited score.
DO THIIS BEFORE YOUR ACCEPTED OF AFTER ACCEPTANCE
thank you :P)
The earlier you file the FAFSA, the better. It opens on October 1st.
Yes, the Naviance codes are individualized to each student.
I’m trying to request a letter of rec on naviance, but the teacher I’m getting a letter from is not on the scroll down menu.
You may not need a Naviance code to get started. In only about 5% of students cannot get in and hence, need the code. Not sure why this happens.
Gretchen, can you see the other teachers in the drop down screen for teacher letters of rec?
yes I can this is Anna carron from Gretchen’s computer
Gretchen, which teacher is missing from the drop down menu?
I will get him added.
I dug around the web and found that if your MIStar Parent Portal is the registration code needed to log onto Naviance. I just tried and it worked.
Sorry, I meant you MIStar Parent Portal password is the code
Geez, I can't type today. :)
Thanks Amanda - that is not working for me, though..
Thanks Beth !!!
