OT: Anyone's kid or loved one get into SC for fall 2018? drheisenberg Junior Member Joined: Aug 24, 2017 Messages: 1,578 Likes Received: 1,798 Mar 25, 2018 #1 A bit of a vent: I was surprised to find out today my kid got a rejection letter. I would have thought a 4.5 GPA, 4 year varsity athlete, drum captain for her high school band, with two parents who are alums, would have had a good shot, especially as a female going into engineering. She's pretty devastated as unfortunately I brainwashed her to love the school and her dream was to march in The Spirit of Troy. Part of me is OK with it as she's been accepted into a higher ranked school out of state, but it makes me wonder what kind of water you need to walk on to get into the school these days. Thank God she applied to a lot so schools, so she has a ton of great options and frankly she's probably going to be the impetus to be blowing out of California in the next decade. End rant.
