    They get a list of all your completed course work and grades. Then if you get accepted they ask for an official transcript.

    I hate to pop your bubble, but don't get too excited about AADSAS sending out earlier than 4-8 weeks after submission.

    You can send transcripts for Fall/Summer courses to the schools directly or use the "update" function on AADSAS. If you use the update function I still recommend sending transcripts to the school since AADSAS can be frustratingly slow at times.

    I'm convinced that transcipts are so basic that they have computer software that scans through them all and does some of the verification. Like how easy would it be for a person to tell a computer to search for the title is "Exactly as it appears on the transcript" and then find "Grade: X" or some similar form of. If it had trouble a person could probably point out the grade and the computer now knows the letter grade and unit count are x distance and direction away from the beginning of the title and could procede with the rest of the transcript.

    Think about it though...I think it would take me about 10 mins to go through my transcripts and verify it all. It just seems like it would take to long and there are just far too many applicants for them to sit and do that all day long. But maybe so!! I guess our cash has to go towards something...whether it be a computer program or some people to check transcripts.

    its okay to make mistakes while ur flling the stuff in right? I mean thats what verification is for correct? For example. I started traking the 2000 level sciences my senior year and by definition in the instructions it says low level classes are first two years. So I put them as high level. Thats okay right they will fix it for me?
