Would this count?

Postby oshberg28 » Sun Sep 05, 2010 10:19 am

A few applications ask whether any of your undergraduate or graduate studies were interrupted for one or more terms, and if so, why. Here's my situation - I was accepted into a graduate program, and attended literally one class before deciding that I couldn't attend any more (mostly due to work - I was working full-time - and other factors). So - no money paid, no grades received, really no record to speak of. Do I report this?

Wow - my situation is almost identical. I'm interested in an answer to this question, too. I *just* decided that I should send the transcript from my grad program (even though I only attended one class before disenrolling). I just don't want something like this to slow down/screw up my review process.

Did you actually receive a grade for the class you took? In my situation, I only attended one actual day of classes - so there's no transcript or anything for me. If you took an entire class and received a grade, then I would say "yes", report it. I'm not so sure in my case though.

No grade. Just like you, I only attended one day of classes. However, there is a transcript online. There are all zeros for the credit earned, etc., but some schools stress that you report all schools attended, whether or not credit was earned.

Wow - it never even crossed my mind to send in a transcript for which no grades were received. If you didn't receive any grades, pay the school any money, etc. - IMO, there is no transcript to send. Technically you may have a transcript, but if it's filled with zeros, then there is no transcript. Oh well - reporting it is another deal.

I did have to pay the school money (there was a long break right after classes started, and I ended up missing the disenrollment deadline). Anyway, I didn't think I would have to report it, but I panicked about my review process getting stalled over a missing transcript, so I decided to send it anyway and write an addendum explaining the situation. I was just worried that schools would think I was hiding something, ya know? Plus, one school I'm applying to has a partnership with the graduate school, so I was worried that they would see it in my records.

Ah, yeah I understand that. Better to just report it then.
