buttpain requests: Harvard Supplement 2010

<p>I dont know if it'll show up for next year's supplemental app, but apparently I need all my transcripts to come from their original places cause I went to a different Highschool than the one I attend now. Harvard also asks for Secondary School Reports from each school i attended! DUDE! Thats 3 SS Reports! Can you imagine all the logistics for this? I live all the way in the Middle East now, so for them, its almost like releasing a student's information to literally someone they dont know on the internet!</p>

<p>Here is the main problem:</p>

<p>A new principal, a long with a new counselor replacing the one that I had last year (retired, he covered surnames A-F). So, NEW curriculum, NEW courses (APs!! They introduced AP the year I move!!) and the new principal/counselor will write that I DONT have the most rigorous courseload!! thats cause its in their new system (AFTER I left...udner the old system, I had the hardest possible)! She wont even have a basis of evaluating me! How can I communicate this ESSENTIAL PIECE of information to Harvard?</p>

<p>Any other picky Ivy places like this?? I looked all of them up and didnt see anything about that^^</p>

<p>Do you think Harvard will mind if I sent them an email about it (since theres no where on any of the two applications to talk about it)? Would they tie it with my application or would they completley disregard it?</p>

<p>I went to two different high schools and remember seeing that on the common app. I only handed in my transcript from the school I attended at the time of the application (my grades from my last school were listed on that transcript as well so I thought that worked nicely). They never told me I was missing anything during the application process so I assumed it was fine. But I think if your current school lists the grades you got at your old school(s), you should be fine!</p>

<p>thanks! If they didnt, would it be okay if the counselor sent in my verified old transcripts (they have the stamp and signature of the Saudi Arabian Cultural Attache @ The Royal Saudi Embassy in Ottawa...needed that to be verified there so I can attend school here in Saudi)? seeing that HE sent them, in addition to the major certification, should mean that they wont say anything right?</p>

<p>The only way to know if Harvard will accept previous school info on the recent transcript, is to call admissions. They may want verification of authenticity so you may indeed need the original schools to submit. </p>

<p>As for the question of changing curriculum--you can explain that on the H supplement, or have the current GC explain the change.</p>
