Transcript Confusion!!
« on: October 01, 2004, 10:14:59 AM »
alright, so i sent in my undergrad transcript a couple weeks back and it's been completely processed by the lsac.  back when i was in high school i took one class at a local community college, and now the name of that school is showing up where it says "other institutions attended".

Furthermore, it states that the level is undergraduate, and this little oddity; that the transcript is 'unacknowledged' (in the comments section).  so do i need to go back to a little jc that i attended 5 years ago for one class to nag them for a transcript?  or does the 'unacknowledged' tag mean that no one cares?

help!   ???

I think you do.  They ask for ALL undergraduate institutions attended.  I think you might be able to get away with it if the school wasn't accreditted, but I don't know.  Hopefully it will boost your GPA!

well here's the thing; when i checked my lsdas account summary, this came up:

 1. Transcript received and processed
    Rec'd   Processed:   School:   Period:   Level:
          Yes   09/30/2004   UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA-IRVINE   00-05   U
 2. Unacknowledged transcripts
    School:  (this will not delay reporting)
      Chaffey College

see how it says that it wont delay reporting?  anyone else have to deal with this?  i seriously went to this school 5 years ago to take one quarter of pre-calculus...

oh wow no kidding,

your picture's so tiny, i can barely make you out; my module focus was on theory, but i've taken pretty much everything poli sci had to offer, so it's likely that we've had a class or two together :)

Hahah Chaffey... Sorry just brings back Inland Empire memories.  Yeah any courses you took at a degree granting instituion you have to get a transcript from.

Got another one in by the end of the day on Friday.

Aren't we supposed to get e-mails when they've received a transcript?

didn't think so...  i think under the new LOR system, you get an e-mail when it's there.  don't think the old one did that though.
