    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if I should have my transcripts printed now and send it to me? The reason I'm asking is because two of my spring course grades aren't that great. So if I request now, they will just all be IPR (in progress).

    And when I fill in my AADSAS online application, I can just put IPR for those courses as it is shown on my transcript, right? Even though there might be a chance I will get to know my actual mark by May 17th?

    Should I send in my transcript even before the online application is completed?
    The only thing is that all that IPR's will include one pre-req, that is a half credit for orgo chem, does that matter?

    And when do you have to send in your updated transcript?

    Thanks a lot! :)

    Should you send your transcript before your application? No. Without an application, your transcript will probably get lost in the shuffle.

    As for when you have to submit updated transcripts, that depends on the schools. But you do have to send them. There's really no point in trying to hide bad marks from schools, they'll eventually find out about them anyways.

    Well, school is not over yet. Just keep focus and do the best you can.
    Adcom looks for overall grades instead of just 1 semester, so just make sure that you finish strong. Good luck

    You could send the transcript before you file your application, as long as you use a transcript matching form, it should not get lost and they will add it to your file as soon as you complete your application. HOWEVER, all the schools you apply to will no doubt ask for a new transcript once this semester is over. Don't bother trying to hide your grades...you will just end up looking dishonest.
