Question regarding required materials

<p>Hello all,</p>

<p>Some of the colleges requires you to send HS transcripts directly from the HS to the college...is that really necessary? Can I just ask for a copy of my hs transcript, and mail it out on my own? I mean, I will ask the counselor to sign on the transcript, and use the hs' address...would it matter at all?</p>

<h1>2 when the supplement is due on February 1st, is it due on 02/01 at 11:59:59pm or 01/31 at 11:59:59?</h1>

<p>thanks in advance.</p>

<p>Usually who sends the transcript doesn't matter, what's important is that it's 'official'. What makes it official is that whoever is in charge at your HS has either stamped or signed over the seal of the envelope to insure that it has not been tampered with. </p>

<p>If the supplement is sent electronically, a Feb. 1 due date means it is due at 11:59 PM on Feb 1. But remember, that that is the time zone the school is in, not yours.</p>

<p>Thanks entomom. really appreciate your comment.</p>

<p>What if I am planning to send paper applications? Do i just need to get stamped on February 1st?</p>

<p>Read the college website closely, and if they don't specify whether it needs to be postmarked or arrive, give them a call.</p>

<p>Okay..thanks for the response. </p>

<p>Also though, when they said application is due on the 01/02/2012 right, does it mean only the common app and the supplement is due on that date? what about hs transcripts, college transcripts, LOR from both pro and dean...etc, those like miscellaneous stuffs. you know? Do they have to be in on the 1st too? are they part of the "application" as they call it?</p>

<p>Generally every part of your application packet is due by the deadline. However, most colleges give some leeway for LORs, test scores, etc. as they know the student doesn't always have control over them.</p>
