Official Transcript vs Unofficial List of Courses

  1. Oct 22, 2014 #1
    I'm planning to contact potential advisors for grad school. I want to send my transcript, but the unofficial transcript I get from my school's website is really cluttered with information that isn't very helpful or informative. I feel like a simple list of courses and grades for each semester would be more useful to potential advisors.

    Is this a good plan? Of course I'll send an official transcript when actually applying to a school, but will potential advisors prefer a nicely-formatted, unofficial list of courses?

    You might provide both. One satisfies any bureaucratic requirements, and the other shows you're considerate.
