Should I send grades?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Feb 01, 2013 7:17 pm

I'm a 1L who got slightly below median first semester. I applied to a bunch of diversity SAs and judges and a few asked for/required my grades. Should I bother sending them since they're low?

How long could it really take to forward an unofficial transcript. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and dont ax yourself from consideration.

Yes. If you do not send them = you won't get the position; if you send them = you might get the position (especially if you are at T-14).

The exact same thing happened to me, and I was also apprehensive about what I should do, but ultimately I sucked it up and sent them. Got mostly no response or 'thanks, we'll be in touch' (yeah, right.......) but i did get several interviews (admittedly all in secondary markets) and one offer (paid non-SA position where I already interviewed) after sending them, so they are definitely worth sending and are not a deal breaker everywhere (I am at a t14 if that's relevant).
