School Profile Issues with Common App

Hi I'm an international student so I had to make the school profile and upload it myself with my counselor on Common App. But some problems occurred! (Actually, there are so many with Common App) My original PDF had my school's badge, transparent, on the background. And it's transparent when I open it on my Preview system. But when I upload it, it is not transparent anymore! Should PDF files meet this kind of problem? Please help! Thank you!

    I am an international student as well, but I told my counselor not to upload a school profile because schools in my country don't have one. I also don't think it's a good idea to make up documents specifically for one candidate because admission officers will notice you are the only one who submitted them.
