Big interest draws lottery for GSMST admission | Moms
GWINNETT COUNTY -- The Gwinnett School of Mathematics, Science and Technology will hold a lottery to decide which students are admitted into the next freshman class in fall of 2013.
A spokesman for GSMST said the school had a great number of students interested in attending, as almost 850 eighth graders had turned in registration for admission as of the February 1 deadline. Only 350 students can be admitted.
The lottery is set for Monday, February 11, and will begin at 7:30 a.m. The drawing will be held in the Instructional Support Center in Suwanee.
Those students who will be a part of the lottery were assigned a number, and notified of that number by email. They will also find out if their name was selected shortly after the drawing, wither by email or mail. The lottery is open to the public, but parents and students are not required to be there.
Those students' names that do not get picked in the first 350 will be added to a waiting list.
