I have a question about admissions to Clemson

I thought many of you might have far more experience in this matter than me and you might have an option. Although I might just be asking a dumb question, not sure.

I have enclosed a letter My son received from Clemson Saturday. I covered up his name fir privacy but in any case he really loves Clemson and wants to go. He has always been a good student. He took the SAT in the 7th grade and scored higher than most college bound seniors and plans to retake it shortly. He took the ACT and I think he scored a 34/36. So I guess what I'm wondering is.. Is this letter just some standard college mail that doesn't mean much or is this really promising? I realize he still would need to apply to officially get accepted but does getting one of these bode well in most cases?

I know he was excited but I told him he hasn't gotten in yet so don't get lazy lol. Thanks in advance.

Congrats to you and your family on the accomplishment. From my experience this is basically saying unless we received false information or something drastic changes prior to acceptance your application is a formality. So your right don't get lazy but it really is an accomplishment to be recognized this early and should ease some of the stress of waiting for acceptance.

That's great news! Congratulations to your son and to you for a great job raising him to be a Clemson man.

I received a very similar letter from them nearly 20 years ago now, and assuming it's still similar, I can tell you that it is something to be excited about. They only send the letters to whom they consider to be good prospects, in hopes that you will visit the campus and give them a shot. Not everyone receives it, and it should be considered "Accepted, unless there's a big red flag in the future".

So, to you: Celebrate. To your son, your advice was good: "You're not in yet, don't get lazy". Ha!

This speaks quite well of your job as parents, as well as, the accomplishments of your son. Hopefully it motivates even better academic outcomes this coming semester. Clemson has become a top notch institution which is hard to get into even on a legacy basis so you should feel very proud in this instance.

Go Tigers!

That's awesome. And don't worry, he isn't any trouble at all. Terrific kid. And his senior year is filled with fairly easy classes and lots of spare time . All the hard stuff he has already done. I'm real proud of him and I have two more boys wanting to go badly that are just a year behind him. All of them are toward the top of their classes and very well mannered. But I'm biased anyway. Lol

I'm really happy for him , I know that's all he talks about.


Does he know he has a coot for a parent?***

Just the simple fact you called them "USC" makes people think you're a coot. Your posting history also gives it away, and it's really no question.

Good job, congrats to you and your son. Obviously a very bright kid who has worked very hard.

Oh, don't sweat the coot stuff. It really doesn't matter, and I don't care enough to research your post history, but I will say we have some posters who scream Coot if you dare to disagree with them. Then they get their circle jerk buddies to pile on with thumbs down to kill your pulse... and then later refer to your pulse as "proof" you're a coot. It's hilarious.

Congrats, from one Tiger to another! That's how I received word about my admission to Clemson. The application and acceptance should be a breeze and you may find more scholarship money is offered as well. He is essentially in, however.

A provisional acceptance letter is absolutely worthy of excitement and celebration sir! Congratulations to your son for his efforts. As long as he stays the course and continues to do what he's been doing, he should find himself on Clemson's campus in no time. Cheers!


congrats to your son.***

Did your son decide to go ahead with the bridge program? I'm assuming it was your son you were talking about a while back.

But his grades are still a factor. If he's average or below he'll probably have to go to another school for at least two semesters to prove he's had a change in attitude toward study.

Clemson protects it's graduation rate and overall GPR by selecting kids that aren't opposed to class and homework.

Teacher's recommendation might make a difference if he's borderline.

He's basically in unless he screws up his grades

still has to apply but he'll be a shoo in if he follows his current trajectory.

With scores like that he'll also be in line for scholarships in addition to the state ones you're probably already expecting and have a really good shot at getting into the Calhoun Honors College.

Received a similar letter 27 years ago.


My letter like that was printed on a Gutenberg press and ...

read something like this "thank you for sending in the stone tablet with your qualifications for admission to Clemson A&M College. According to your the papyrus transcript provided by your school, you have achieved a strong "D" average and did not finish in the bottom 3% of your graduating class. Your extracurricular activities in the chariot racing club is very impressive and according to your police record, we see nothing more than several misdemeanors. Welcome to Clemson......have a safe boat ride up the Tugaloo."
