Easy Question (Transcripts)

Postby StillIll » Fri Jan 11, 2013 1:23 pm

Hey all,

Just a quick and easy question.

Do the schools you apply to see any transcript information besides my LSDAS Academic Summary Report? For example, will they see my minors or that I retook many classes I had C's in and got A's the second time around?

If not, is this useful information to supply in an addendum?

Cheers and thanks

Yes and probably not.

Ok thanks, yeah I only was going to supply an addendum if they didn't see that information.

In a follow-up question, how many schools (in your experience) ask for arrest disclosures in addition to conviction disclosures? Of course I'll find out in about a week when my apps roll out but I was just curious.

Most of them. A lot of them asked if you were "charged" with a crime, and some bring it as far back as to ask you to include cases where you were cited and the case was dismissed.
