  1. Hi everyone! I am looking to apply to a master's program next year. A potential problem that occurred to me is that I will have at least six different transcripts from different schools. I transferred once in undergrad, took community college courses at two different schools, and did a post-bacc. I am worried that this might show I was unable to commit to a program/school. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with this?
  2. Hey all, I have received a copy of my official transcripts from my undergraduate university. I am applying to 10 PhD programs. Could I simply scan a copy of my transcript 10 times and send the schools those or must I send each school an actual transcript in the post? Thanks in advance
  3. I got accepted to NMSU (woohoo), but they want me to submit my official transcript. Which I did. Only problem is I have 12 misc credits from two universities that didn't even count toward getting my degree in any way (takes 128 credits to graduate. Got 142 total. Minus 12? 130. Plenty.), and they are requiring that I submit official transcripts from these two schools even after saying it did not affect me getting my degree (literally though. They didn't even apply to any of my gen eds.) The other issue is because they were like six years ago, I don't even know my student number, let alone can they be transferred again since the school I got my degree from has the permanent records. What can I do to bypass this issue? They will not officially accept me until they get these "official" records from schools that don't even matter.
  4. Hi guys! Can anybody applying to Gallaudet for a Master's in Speech-Language Pathology describe to me in detail how to check if the program has received my GRE or transcripts? I've emailed them several times for more detail but they respond again and again again to check my Student Center? Is that the same as my graduate application? I'm still in the process of completing my application, but I've checked actually everywhere and I can't see where received documents show up. Can somebody please help
  5. Having gone through the application process at American universities, I have found the State universities to have the friendliest application portals. They usually have the same interface and one can easily go through all the pages/tabs/questions etc. The recommendation list can be updated any time before the deadline. More importantly, they send the recommendation requests immediately after filling in the details. The best part is the payment system where it is a breeze to pay fees for international applicants like me. They accept many, if not all, types of credit/debit cards. Not to mention the application fees are usually less than $50, sometimes even $30ish. On the contrary, many Ivy League and private universities are seriously a pain in the nether regions. Aside from the fees, which are usually above $100 for international applicants , the online portals are user unfriendly and prone to crash/errors. The recommendation system is not smooth and sometimes one has to complete the app and pay the fees before these to be generated. The payment systems are also complicated and only accept a few credit cards. Wondering if/when they will modify their systems. If funds-starved state universities can do it, what's holding them back? Donors?
  6. I got this really troubling email from csdcas and I’m not really sure what it means. Can someone explain this to me? Does this ruin my chances of getting in? A lot of my deadlines were by the 15th of January. I got this email just now so there’s nothing I can do about it until tomorrow, but I definitely plan on calling them tomorrow and sending out another transcript immediately.
  7. I recently submitted my app to GWU (like two weeks ago) and they require you to submit unofficial transcripts from any transfer and study abroad credits. Unfortunately, where I studied abroad wouldn't let you download an unofficial transcript and I had to request for an official one to be delivered by international courier. I'm worried that it will make it way after the deadline (deadline is Jan 7 for funding, and transcripts are coming from Egypt). Will this be an issue at all or will it'll be acceptable? Of course the office says theyre swamped so won't answer calls or emails.
  8. Why's there such a great anomaly between the official transcripts and self-uploaded copies by applicants? Some schools encourage students to upload scanned copies of their transcripts. Others absolutely want the official transcripts to be sent in sealed envelopes from the mother institutions. What's the point really in official submission when the admission is not granted in the first place? This is particularly difficult for international students that are hard pressed at meeting additional requirements and have to negotiate bureaucratic red tapes. Waiting/delivery times are also much longer. The application phase is just that, a phase. The adcoms and higher-ups of the non-cooperative universities need to up their game.
  9. I am applying to M.Ed. program at Vanderbilt Peabody and the MBA program at Vanderbilt Owen. Three years ago, one year after I graduated undergrad, I spent all of two weeks enrolled in Nashville School of Law. It is the city law school. I had been pre-law in my undergrad and thought I wanted to be an attorney, but I did not. I went to the city law school so I could try it out and the cost burden would be minimal (i paid my way on cash). Not to mention, it was easy to get in. I withdrew from classes after two weeks. Never looked back. Should I tell the Vanderbilt admissions people about this and include the transcript in my application? It was a small blip on the radar of my life that I'd really rather just leave out instead of having to explain.
  10. My undergrad marksheets are of two types: 1. A single sheet with all the final marks for each subect and course throughout my 8 semesters (no papers repeated visible). 2. Separate marksheets for each semester and paper repeated(8 + repeated papers). I have transcripts for both types. Can I upload type 1 with no repercussions?
  11. Hey everyone, I am applying next fall to Econ PhDs, shooting for something in the top 15. I had a 3.8 in undergrad in International Affairs - although had a B+ in a Principles of Macro class, and I'm finishing up a Master's in Development Economics with a 3.9 including a few A+'s in upper level theory and econometrics classes. 95th percentile quant GREs. About 2 years of solid RA experience and an internship at a leading development research group. My math backround is as follows: A in Calc for Business and Economics (UG), As in several statistics courses (UG), A in Elementary Linear Algebra (UG), A in Introduction to Formal Methods (UG), A- in Real Analysis (Graduate), A- in Math for Economists (Graduate). I decided to take Calc III this semester despite never really going through the normal calc sequence to try to check the calc box for admissions committees, and the class is killing me!!! I think that there is a very small chance I'll get anything more than a C. My question is how much would a W hurt my application? Given time and money constraints I won't be able to take another calc class before its time to apply next fall. Thanks for any advice you have.
  12. I just received my grades for this semester and did very well. I'd like to let my prospective schools know, as this semester shows a significant improving trend for my GPA. However, many of my application deadlines have passed. Is there a way in which I can notify these schools about my performance? Should I try to send an updated transcript? Is there any precedent for this? I feel that this issue is very common for students whose semesters end in late December and have early December application deadlines. Thanks.
  13. Hi everyone, I was wondering if most people submitted their applications with their PRE-FALL grades? I submitted all of my applications by early October, so of course these did not include my Fall grades. Does anyone know what schools prefer/if you can just mail in your post-fall grades if apps have already been locked and submitted? Thanks!!
  14. SO the deadline is Dec 1st, my checklist shows that my GRE, TOEFL, Transcripts are still unofficial,,,, I'm worried,,,, what else can I do now?
  15. Hey everybody, I am very new to this website and I am currently applying some grad schools around US and you know some schools want the transcripts to be send directly from the universities. However, the university I graduated in Germany refuses to send the transcripts by mail to US universities and they say it is forbidden by law. I am abroad, so I can't go and take personally from them. They won't even send them to me by post. I only have one original copy of my transcripts and that's it. Only one school agreed to accept a scanned copy but still 2-3 schools want them by post and they don't understand. Neither my german coordinator nor the officers in US. Can anybody update me? Are there any german students that can help me?
  16. Hello, I'm applying to MSW programs right now and I had a question about my transcripts. I received my bachelor of arts degree in 2013, and then took a couple years off. I then attended a local community college for just a few courses to get a letter of rec for my grad school applications. My question is, when submitting the transcripts for the community college, do they need to reflect that I stopped taking classes? Put another way: since I'm not receiving any sort of degree from this school, do I need to officially file any forms or "drop out" of the school so that the transcript doesn't just look incomplete? Or if I submit a transcript now with just those few courses, will that suffice for the admissions committee? My UCSD transcripts show that I was awarded my BA so it'll be clear I have a bachelor's degree. Thanks!
  17. Hi all, I've been attaching official secured PDF transcripts to several graduate school applications. Two of my transcripts are supplied by "TranscriptsNetwork" (a Credentials Solution offshoot) and one is from University of Pittsburgh's own online system. I sent these transcripts to myself, meaning I am the "intended recipient" of all these "Third-Party Secure PDFs." When I attached them to some applications, I received an error message that a password protected/encrypted file cannot be accepted by the system. Should I be worried that this is the case for ALL applications, even the ones that haven't given me this kind of error message? Will no one but me be able to open these electronic transcripts? I suppose the best solution is to print the transcripts out, scan them, and then upload them to applications, but University of Pittsburgh clearly states that printed transcripts will read "VOID" across each page. Any ideas? Thanks!
  18. So I've been reading this, rather useful and highly recommended, blog by a science professor who reflects upon her experience with graduate admissions, and I've lit upon the following: Transcripts are interesting to read because you can see a student's evolution of interests. Did they take an intro course in Science their very first term and immediately dive into the major? Did they meander around for a year or so, sampling a wide variety of courses before focusing? And here comes the problem. Many countries simply do not offer one a choice when it comes to the study track. All the courses I took I had to take. They say nothing about me, except for the initial choice of the specialization I made when I was 17 (!). Are adcomms aware of the peculiarities of different countries' curricula? Should an international student mention some extra important characteristics somewhere?
  19. I am looking at some applications from previous years and have noticed that they ask for transcripts from all institutions attended. I have taken a couple of online courses at a community college and will transfer my credits to my main institution at the end of the year (after graduate school decisions have been made) so that I can get my undergraduate degree on time. Could it come back to bite me if I don't send my community college transcript (6 or 9 credit hours) to the graduate schools to which I am applying? I would really rather not send them because 1. It costs like $60 per school and 2. Transfer credits don't affect my GPA at my main institution so I phoned it in for those courses and got C's.
  20. Hi there, I'm applying for Fall 2017 PhD admission, and am submitting both undergraduate and master's transcripts. A good number of my master's degree courses were "special topics" classes - that is, courses that use the same course number every year, but cover varied specific field interests. However, I was surprised to find that my final transcript does not include course titles for these classes, and it seems very difficult to obtain them. One or two of my PhD applications require a listing of previous pertinent coursework, and I am concerned it will harm my chances of acceptance if I can't retrieve these course titles. I've already spoken with my prior university department, and they apparently don't keep a record on file of the special course topics each year. Likewise, the university registrar has said it would require an extensive amount of work to go back and research the course titles for my transcript (they did not seem willing to do this). I have some idea of what courses I took (this was at least three years ago) and could probably guess on a few (so I could likely create a partial coursework list), but nothing complete. Can anyone offer advice about my situation? Thanks so much in advance!
  21. I go to a small liberal arts college and I noticed that starting this past semester my school began putting class ranks on our transcripts. I don't have a bad GPA by any means, it's actually a 3.34. But my class rank (based solely on GPA) is in the bottom half of my class. What frustrates me is that they're basically comparing apples to oranges to pears. To me it seems incredibly silly to compare geology majors to art history majors to economic majors, especially since some majors are certainly more challenging. With this in mind, is my class rank going to hurt my chances for grad school programs? Or is this just a silly number towards the bottom of my transcript?
  22. I just hit "submit" on my Harvard application, the last of the six! Would be feeling great but I discovered a possible issue at the last minute. I studied abroad for a year. All course names and grades from study abroad DO appear on my home institution transcript. I thought I had checked with every school I'm applying to about whether my home institution transcript would be sufficient, but at the last minute I realized I may not have asked Harvard and the instructions say official transcripts are required from every institution attended. No exception mentioned for study abroad programs. (All the other schools did say it was OK as long as the grades were on the home institution transcript.) I contacted my study abroad institution's transcript office to see if they could rush a transcript for me, and sure enough they are out on winter break. The Harvard deadline is this Saturday so there was nothing I could do by then, and I had to just submit the application hoping for the best. What are the chances that my application will actually not be reviewed because of this issue? Anyone have any idea? I hope that if it's a problem they'll just inform me I'm missing a required document. My application is otherwise extremely well prepared, and the program to which I'm applying (Regional Studies East Asia) is a small program that receives only about 120 applications a year. I hope they won't throw my application out! The Harvard instructions and application are slightly messy compared to some such as Yale's. (for one thing the application inspector on the financial aid app was all messed up and apparently not updated from last year's application!) Study abroad transcripts are not specifically addressed, and where you list every institution you have attended, there is a place under each institution where they ask "Have you uploaded a transcript?" You can say "no" here and still have your application pass the inspector. So it's a bit confusing, and I'm not completely sure whether it's even a problem or not. I did do a web search and found an FAQ page for the Harvard Graduate School of Education where they state that study abroad transcripts are required even if grades appear on the home institution transcript. Don't know whether all rules would be the same between the GSE and the GSAS, though I guess they probably are... :-(
  23. Really. My alma mater is in Israel and I currently reside in Boston, so any and all communications with them take place through my mother at best, or on the phone at 4 am, at worst. I ask them to send copies of my transcript, including graduate work. They say it'll take two weeks. It takes more. They send it out and I discover the transcripts do not include my graduate work. I explain the mistake to the universities to which I'm applying. They understand, and request that I send the completed transcripts when I have them. My mother finally received the new transcripts yesterday, and sent them all off. However she only received 7, when there were supposed to be 8 (one for me, to scan and upload to websites). She returns to the university today where they tell her, apologetically, that the transcripts they translated only included my undergraduate work. She had already sent the new transcripts to all the universities that required a hard copy. That means more emails, having to apologize for my alma mater's apparent inability to include my graduate courses in the transcripts. It also means that all in all, I would've sent 3(!!) copies of my transcripts to all these universities by the time this is over. If I were them, I would throw my application in the trash out of sheer annoyance. OK. Rant over. Thank you for coming
  24. Hi folks, hope all is well with you! I wonder what you guys think of affixing a brief note to my transcript? I've written a very brief note regarding a few classes (the grading system for those classes was different than for the other regular literature classes, and the transcript itself does not explain this) and affixed it to the transcript as the last page of the transcript PDF. On the top I've written a little header that "this is not a part of the XYZ College transcript," and I wrote "Note" as well and signed my name at the bottom to make it super clear that I added this page. I can't find any specific rules forbidding or encouraging this kind of thing. What do you guys think? Thanks!
  25. So for my schools that request a PDF of undergrad transcripts: I have an extra copy of my transcript from last year (when I applied for the first time) and, because it costs money to request transcripts from my university, I plan on just scanning this one and uploading it. But I've moved in the past year, so the address on the transcript is different from my current address (the one I'm listing on all applications). Could this potentially cause a problem? Or will it appear self-evident that I've moved? Am I just going insane and overanalyzing everything? When is this all over?!??
