Admissions without senior year?


Scalia

Recommended Posts

How much consideration do admissions committees place on classes that you'll take during your senior year? Due to phd admissions deadlines falling in December, there is almost a year of coursework that won't even be on my transcript by the time I send off my apps. There are some classes that I am taking next year that will really bolster my relevant coursework and I was wondering how I could get those courses taken into consideration.

I just checked and I can see the courses that I'm registered in. However, with the application deadline being in December, I won't even have my fall grades before I have to send in my transcripts. Therefore, it's still almost like an entire year won't be taken into consideration.

Most applications have a section which allows you to list pertinent coursework that you are planning to complete before enrolling in gradaute school. However, becasue you have not been graded in these classes they are little more than a curiosity. At best, the adcomm will assume that you will perform about as well in these classes as your other courses.

If you have already taken many of your important classes for your program (stats, upper level psych courses) then I wouldn't worry about it.

I applied during my senior year and it wasn't a problem at all having to send an incomplete transcript. Schools will ask you to send a final transcript at the end of the year (if your accepted) to make sure you didn't slack off :P
