HWNT-Mel Avalos
02:30:26
"Lifestyle Creep" that's an excellent term!
HWNT/Martina Treviño

HWNT-Mel Avalos
02:56:05
Definitely! It's such a good life skill to be able to pick yourself up after a disappointment.
HWNT Rosanna Green
02:57:40
Often, as Latina women, we are conditioned not to make waves.
HWNT Rosanna Green
02:58:09
But as Cynthia says, you don't get what you ask for.
HWNT Rosanna Green
02:58:52
You don't get what you DON'T ask for. :-)
Sandra State HWNT

03:16:50
Address is on the website
Melissa (she/hers/ella) Martínez Domínguez

HWNT's address is PO Box 1523, Fort Worth, TX 76101.
Adriana Davila
03:19:42
Does it have to be official transcript??
HWNT - Wilma Lopez
03:21:06
Essay limit is 500 words, not 250, correct?
HWNT - Wilma Lopez
03:21:24
I should have said min. 500 words on essary.
Melissa (she/hers/ella) Martínez Domínguez
03:21:36
yes
Melissa (she/hers/ella) Martínez Domínguez
03:21:53
250 word limit for certain questions, and the essay is 500 words
HWNT - Wilma Lopez
03:22:53
Thanks for the clarification Melissa!
Alondra Martinez
03:24:31

Sandy- HWNT-Chair
03:25:35
Teachers, Pastors, Bosses, Mentors, Coaches etc
Joceline Rojas
03:27:47
can you stop and resume the application?
Joceline Rojas
03:28:00
or does it have to be completed in one sitting?
HWNT - Wilma Lopez
03:28:06
TIP: It's also a good idea to give your references a copy of your resume so they can recollect their what extracurricular activities you are involved in. Teachers especially have A LOT of students to recall, help them out!
Sandra State HWNT
03:28:23
NA - not applicable
Joceline Rojas
03:29:01
Will it be first come first serve? or will the applications be reviewed at the same time?
Sandra State HWNT
03:30:20
Evaluated at the same time.
Samantha Garcia
03:30:21
how would we provide a copy of our sat scores? would we take a picture of the physical paper that displays our score or print a page of the score online?
abigail torres
03:30:35
If we get a paper transcript from our school can we just take a picture of it and upload it to the application? And what if we have the unweighted GPA only?
Gaby Gonzales
03:31:38
what if we haven’t taken our SAT?
Melissa (she/hers/ella) Martínez Domínguez
03:31:38
Download your test scores from the testing website and upload
Samantha Garcia
03:33:19
we would only need at least one of the two scores? either sat or act? how come both of them are required since I haven't taken my act?
Adriana Davila
03:33:49
If you did community service in the summer 2020, could I make the formstack?
Adriana Davila
03:36:16
Is there a word limit or MAX on the short answers
HWNT - Wilma Lopez
03:36:26
Reminder - leadership doesn't always carry a leader title!
Melissa (she/hers/ella) Martínez Domínguez
03:36:41
yes it tells you on the prompt. (25o word min)
HWNT Cristal Hernandez
03:37:39
Great session Ladies! Thank you!
Melissa Rubiano
03:38:45
Is it 2 or 3 references total?
Isabella Antunes
03:39:15
are the reference's address supposed to be the address from where they sent their form and letter?
HWNT-Diana Pittman
03:39:22
More is Always Better
Miranda Vivanco
03:39:37
so it can’t be a friend?
hazel juarez
03:39:59
what id my references aren’t comfortable with letting the applicants know their address because of privacy reasons?
hazel juarez
03:40:05
if*
Miranda Vivanco
03:40:40
is it okay if i mail if for them?

Jimena Martinez
03:42:53

Mandy Castro
03:44:26
https://onramps.utexas.edu/resources/transcripts/
Mandy Castro
03:44:49
There is a $20 charge for transcripts from OnRamps
Mandy Castro
03:45:10
I am not sure on that…
Mandy Castro
03:45:17
They may have a student portal for that...
Nicole Quintero
03:45:17
There is also a fee for TCC transcripts
Alondra Martinez
03:45:24
I believe for tcc there a fee as well
Vanessa & Valerie Nunez
03:46:10
I took an onramps course one year did y’all want the transcript for that as well ?
Annalisa Velazquez
03:46:38
Do I need to have a tcc transcript for dual credit even if my dual credit grades are on my official transcript?
Nayeli Santamaria Cadena
03:48:00
What if the letter of recommendations arrive before the application is done?
abigail torres
03:48:15
If we get a paper transcript from our school can we just take a picture of it and upload it to the application?
Sandy- HWNT-Chair

https://www.camscanner.com/
Nicole Quintero
03:49:32
If on our FWISD transcript it has our Dual Credit classes, but does not specify which classes are DC, should we submit TCC transcript as well?

Students have not yet been notified of interview selection for Community Scholars.
Adriana Davila
