    Hello,
    My daughter 7yrs2m recently went through WISC-V Testing and her scores are as below. My question is, is it worth applying for Davidson with these scores and what are the chances she will be accepted. We are going through some additional testing soon as the Psychiatrist feels that her actual IQ is much higher. During the testing she suffered from Streph Throat and was feeling very poorly. Should I submit the application?
    Full scale IQ* 99.7th
    General Abilities Index
    (GAI)
    99.8th
    Verbal Comprehension 99.9th
    Visual Spatial 99th
    Fluid Reasoning 98th
    Working Memory 99th
    Processing Speed 99th

    Without any further information, it is, of course, a bit difficult to say, but there is certainly no harm in submitting an application, I would think. (What's the worst thing that can happen? They say no, and your situation is unchanged. Then maybe you get more data, and consider re-submitting.) But given that you are actually in the midst of the testing process, you might want to consider waiting until you have that additional data, especially since it is likely to either support the existing scores, or support the suspicion that her actual cognition is higher. Either way, you will have data to support the conclusion.
