▪Seniors, things should be quieting down now. Most of you have given me your transcript requests, and I have uploaded/mailed these out. So, many of you should be watching the mail now! However, those of you who have still NOT turned in a transcript request but are looking at November or December deadlines will soon be in a jam. We are moving towards the holiday season, and you know how much I love Christmas… Any requests I receive between the end of this week and the winter break may NOT be completed as quickly as you might like. I will need a MINIMUM of three business days to complete any transcript/letter of recommendation requests which I have not already received! Please keep that in mind: LACK OF PLANNING ON YOUR PART DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN EMERGENCY ON MY PART!
