Many schools require 2 copies of transcripts, one for the dept and one for the graduate office eg: UNC, Chapel Hill. I had asked the graduate coordinator whether I could send only one copy of transcript in case I am financially constrained, and he agreed, by saying that he will make a copy of the original and keep that with the dept and send the original to the graduate office. But till now when I log into their application checklist, it shows that only my dept copy of transcripts are received. I have mailed them many times, but they are unresponsive. Has anyone here faced similar situation?
similar situation is with U of Pennsylvania, they said that I could upload my transcripts and once I am offered an admission I could send them the original complete transcript. But till now the application checklist shows that my transcripts are not received and my application is incomplete.
as some schools have started offering admissions, I am getting really tensed..
