    "Official" Transcripts

    It depends on the school/program! Some schools will accept the bare minimum (a screenshot or saved file of your transcripts from your institution's website) while others require scans of transcripts that are on institutional letterhead. So far only one of the programs I am applying to has asked me to send official physical transcripts to them directly, in addition to completing my online application. The same applies for GRE scores - some schools will accept a self-reporting, others want you to upload your unofficial score report, and others want scores sent to them. I have been most successful finding this information on FAQ pages.
  2. I have been sifting through the gradcafe forum and have yet to find any threads that detail previous applicants' profiles. My main motivation in posting this thread is to find past forums like these for Literature, Rhetoric, and Composition: Please link me/us if you know of an existing forum! Otherwise, we can start posting here (I know we are all in the thick of application season right now) once acceptances start rolling around. Maybe individuals who were accepted last year/in previous cycles can still give us some insight in the meantime. Below is the template: Undergrad Institution: (School or type of school (such as Big state/Lib Arts/Ivy/Technical/Foreign (Country?))
