    Hello
    If I am applying to Early Action for the Coast Guard, will they request to see first quarter grades? Or will they only want to see 1st semester. Thank you !

    We were wondering that too, especially if first quarter grades were better than last year and want to show an improvement. Can we send it in after the application is already submitted? We just didn't want to bombard the admissions with documents they don't need or want. Any advice?

    (By the way, our quarter grades are not permanent and will not go on final transcript or affect GPA, although it will show a temporary current GPA. It's just to show them that there is progress.) thoughts?

    My DD sent her first quarter grades to admissions counselor with a note that read, "not sure if these will be used in admissions process for EA, but I figured any updated information couldn't hurt". He thanked her but did not say one way or the other whether they would be considered.

    They ask for what they want.

    We actually ask for what we require and that doesn't mean we don't want something we don't ask for. I always recommend applicants submit anything, including first quarter grades, they want the Cadet Candidate Evaluation Board to consider.

    And what they want are cadets who can form a five member bluegrass band (correct me if I'm wrong).

    There is going to be a big hole for a hot electric guitar player after 2017 graduation.
