How badly did I hurt myself? [#permalink] New post 19 Jan 2014, 08:14
Applying to Fuqua, Ross, Anderson, Booth, Kellogg

I uploaded an unofficial digital transcript to the schools because I was always operating under the assumption that they would suffice until an interview was offered. Turns out some of these schools do, and some do not.

Kellogg, Fuqua and Ross all require official transcripts that have to be uploaded to your application and not sent in physically. I'm not sure how I can upload an official transcript since it will have touched my hands. My guess is I missed a simple transcript request box in each application.

1) How screwed am I for these schools?
2) Any recommendations for how to fix the situation?

Already Interviewed with Anderson and Ross interview scheduled so it's possible those may be my only two with my screw-up.

I would say an official transcript is one that was issued by the school. So not a list of grades you made yourself, and maybe not a printout from the website, but the hardcopy you got from your school that you digitalized. You should be totally fine.

I'm confused. You can upload unofficial digital transcripts, that works fine. You only need an official transcript if you are admitted and matriculating, unless I'm missing something...it worked fine for Kellogg, Ross and Fuqua for me...

You are correct. I verified with all of the schools again to be sure. Several schools say they require an official for the application. My confusion steams from the fact that my transcript read official AND unofficial on the same document. Apparently, my undergrad just likes to be confusing

Okay, just let them know and ask if you should do anything. Schools don't "penalize" you for stuff like that. If they like your candidacy, they like your candidacy.
