Many programs, but not all, will accept late grades.
It seems that with most master's programs (LSE and BGSE for example) first semester grades aren't final until after U.S. PhD admissions deadlines. So, students have to either apply to PhD programs without grades from their master's programs or wait until the next year to apply.
Does anyone know if, conditional on being in a master's program, applying without master's grades hurts PhD admissions chances? Obviously being able to show good grades in a strong master's program would help, but does it hurt to apply in the first year before grades are final? Would they simply treat your enrollment in the master's program as no information?
Follow up to the original post:
If you do well in the fall term you'd clearly want to send in your grades. But if you don't do well, whether in college or in a master's programs, you might not want to. Does not sending in late grades after applications are due look bad to adcoms?
