I am 47 years old, washed out of my first college then transferred to another one a couple years later, graduating with honors in 1998. I just earned my MA this last August with a 3.88 GPA.
That makes three schools and three transcripts, and when I registered with LSDAS I had copies of the transcripts forwarded to them. Here is my question: After getting my BA I took classes at about 5 different schools. Due to my husband's job we were moving around a lot, and mostly it was just one or two classes at each place, which I took at night.
I did not send transcripts from these schools to LSDAS because I did not think they were important. I got all As in the classes but they would not add to my undergraduate GPA because I took them after getting my BA. But then I thought, maybe I really need to have transcripts sent anyway. I went on the LSDAS website thinking that I would be able to add them as schools I had attended, but it turned out that I had been frozen out of that option at some date.
My question is, do I really need to report these schools? It's not as though I am trying to hide something bad. But, it is an omission of part of my academic record. Should I call up the LSDAS and see if I can add them now? I do not want to have to worry about this for the next 3 years or the rest of my career.
