A.  In order to do official Rank & GPA, summer school grades have to be rolled over.  Transcripts have to then be reviewed by families and counselors to make sure there are no errors.  Then IMS needs to run official GPA & Rank.  Official Transcripts are then uploaded to Naviance.

The earliest deadline date for any college admission application is October 15th, which is a total of only 14 colleges across the country.  Applications received prior to a deadline date are all treated under the same admissions requirements.
