Question about transcripts that employers request.

Postby kswiss » Wed Mar 17, 2010 11:33 am

Background: I'm an 0L. I attended 3 colleges. All of my courses for all of the schools are on my degree granting university transcript. When i'm applying for jobs in mass mail and in OCI, what kind of UG transcripts are they usually looking for?

I ask because on my degree granting transcript, they list all of the classes that I took at the other schools in an addendum, and they figure into my GPA. Even so, it ends up looking a lot better because I did badly my freshman year, so my GPA is higher because of academic forgiveness policies. Just looking at that single transcript, I look like an almost flawless student. Bring in the others and I show some problems (even though they were almost 10 years ago.)

I'm not really stressing about it, and I'm sure my LS GPA will trump all, but I've heard from a bunch of people that employers also factor UG GPA into their decision making.

I did not have a single employer request an UG transcript.

If you happen to get one that does, ask them which they want.
