I would have your school send an official copy of your transcript directly to the institution. Those are usually sealed so you can't look at them (which you would have to if you were faxing it).

I would fax an unofficial so that they get it right away but follow it with an official one through the mail. Let them know you are sending one through the mail as well. This is good because if the mailed one doesn't make it for some reason at least they have the unofficial in the mean time while you get another one sent out.

Nothing that comes directly from you is going to be acceptable. The above advice from RevivedPreMed is a sound way to do this. Just be sure that your unofficial transcript (that you are sending for expedience) is exactly the same as your official transcript that will come from your registrar's office meaning that there are no marks on it at all. In truth, no medical school is going to make any decisions based on an unofficial transcript. Start contacting your registrar right away as you don't want things delayed.
