Using OSCAR transcript for firms

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Aug 05, 2017 1:25 pm

My school's registrar takes a long time to provide unofficial transcripts. For mass-mailing emails, is it acceptable to use my OSCAR transcript instead of one provided by the school?

I've literally never heard of law students drafting their own unofficial law school transcripts. Is this common?

At my t13, my law school literally tells us to do so.

Never heard of this. Our registrar can produce an unofficial transcript about a day after you request it. Pretty sure your school is the anomaly here.

But hey, if your school tells everyone to do it, guess that's what OP should do.

Or we're being trolled.

Not trolling, but we might be an anomaly.

Seems like the word thing is unusual, but any input on the original question? Any reason this would be harmful? I want to get apps out before Tuesday or Wednesday when I would get my transcript.

I guess that works. But why can't you just take a screenshot of whatever webpage lists your grades/GPA and then save as a pdf?

Yea, this is what I did. It's not like the firm cares as long as the grades are accurate.

my school does this to and even provides a word doc to fill in your grades. i am so paranoid about marking one wrong that i just screen shot the grade viewer app or whatever though. it also is 1000x easier.

Yeah, I have no idea which T13 has such a TTT registrar, but it's not Cornell.

So does mine, provides a word template and specifically tells people to use it rather than the unofficial pdf you can get from the registrar at any point in time.

Lol what kind of garbage T13 does this? This is probably the first time GeorgeTTTown's Registrar does shit better than other law schools. I didn't even know that was possible.

We created our own unofficial transcripts at my t20. There is an option to get a school unofficial one but it didn't copy paste or otherwise port very well over into a doc / pdf. Kind of a giant fail considering everybody interviewing needs an unofficial transcript but hey...
