Janine Eckert

Do counselor letter recommendation have to be requested through Naviance? Does every counselor give a recommendation that is their particular student?
Eric Burson
54:25
This presentation will be posted on the South Counseling page.
Eric Burson
55:17
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.
Janine Eckert

Got it - thx

any idea how deferments by the senior class of 2020 will affect the current senior class with regard to admission?
Eric Burson
56:37
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?
Amanda Roraff
01:01:15
Where do we receive the Naviance "registration code"?
Katherine Krick
01:01:50
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?
Eric Burson
01:03:53
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...
Katie Maraldo
01:04:07
Does the application that can be submitted on October 15th include the LORs?
Melony Johnson
01:04:37
Upvoting Amanda's question on Naviance Registration Code
Eric Burson
01:04:50
Yes, your application is not complete unless it includes a teacher letter of rec, if that school requires one.
Eric Burson
01:06:02
If you do not have your Naviance registration code, contact your guidance counselor for this.
Katie Maraldo
01:07:40
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?
Eric Burson
01:11:05
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.
Lawrence Gannan

The earlier you file the FAFSA, the better. It opens on October 1st.
Eric Burson
01:12:09
Yes, the Naviance codes are individualized to each student.
Gretchen Carron
01:12:30
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.
Eric Burson
01:13:04
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.
Eric Burson
01:13:40
Gretchen, can you see the other teachers in the drop down screen for teacher letters of rec?
Gretchen Carron
01:14:09
yes I can this is Anna carron from Gretchen’s computer
Eric Burson
01:14:23
Gretchen, which teacher is missing from the drop down menu?
Gretchen Carron
01:14:31
Andrew Taylor
Eric Burson
01:14:37
I will get him added.
Gretchen Carron
01:15:52
thank you!
Amanda Roraff
01:16:57
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.
Eric Burson
01:17:15
Thanks Amanda!!
Amanda Roraff
01:17:19
Sorry, I meant you MIStar Parent Portal password is the code
Amanda Roraff
01:17:31
Geez, I can't type today. :)
Melony Johnson
