Sure! Nothing impressive/major but here it is.
Current University: Medium-size liberal arts college in the USA
-Expected Grade: 3.75/4.0 (some universities in the UK consider this a 2:1, some consider it 1st class. I’m unsure what it is for KCL) I wish it could be higher but I had a lot of issues in my first year.
- Fun fact/Extra Curricular activities: I won a small scholarship award for my service to the college. Im graduating a semester earlier. During the summer I work for a school in another country (teaching 6th-9th grade students), I enjoy learning languages and During my time in college, I was a Resident assistant.

Thanks! It is impressive, at least your GPA and work abroad is. Mine is only 3.45 which is 2:1 upper so i am a little apprehensive about my application. Anyway, got my fingers crossed!

Sure! I graduated from Florida State University with a BA in International Relations. GPA 3.9. I had some work experience but it wasn't much.
I think they look mostly at grades. Possibly, being an international student, my chances were good.

Hi all! I've been waiting on my last reference from my professor but just received this message from KCL's admissions team after having some issues with my digital transcript:

"Thank you for your message, We can now see your final transcript and your application has been processed by admissions and sent to the academic department for a final decision."

Does this mean they are moving ahead with the review process without the second reference?
