    Why do some schools request a high school transcript and how do they use it? I am concerned bc as a high school student I did poorly, never cared about doing well, took the SAT blindly not even knowing what it was testing me on. My high school transcript clearly does not reflect who I am today and what my capabilities are.

    Yes, if anyone could shed light on this, that would be appreciated! Since I had to send H.S. transcripts to Buffalo and Harvard, my interested was piqued. I imagine they just want a better idea of your lifetime as a student, of upward trends, strengths and weaknesses? I just wonder if they put any weight on maturity with age, since I did fine in junior and senior year of high school, but used freshman year to discover myself and had other priorities. (Like dating :))
