grad transcript question

Postby pupshaw » Fri Oct 14, 2011 5:19 pm

Hi everyone,

I hope this is the right forum for this question. I finished a master's degree in the spring, but the degree is actually awarded this month. Apparently it won't show up on my transcript, though, until sometime in the first half of November. I'm hoping to send my applications out by Nov. 15. Since I know it could take awhile for my school to send the transcript out, and then for LSAC to process it, am I better off just getting my transcript now? If so, my department offered me a letter that would certify that I'd completed all the necessary requirements for the M.A.--is there a way to add that to my file at lsac? Or should I just write an addendum?

Thanks in advance--any help is much appreciated!

IMO, they'll want your final transcript from your grad school. If you're committed to submitting before that final transcript is available, submit what you deem necessary, but it's the final transcript that's important.
