The Unofficial Transcript and what it means

Some of you know about the Unofficial Transcript trick, and some of you don't.

What it does:
The unofficial transcript is another way of finding out whether you've been accepted or not. When you view it, if the page loads, tells you a student ID and major, and some information, then it is an indication that you have been accepted. If the page says: "This Page is not loading" or something similar, your application is still in review. The unofficial transcript will show for you only if your application status says that a decision has already been made.

To get there:
Click on the 'Student' tab at the top of your myUW account. Under 'Student Personal services' click 'Unofficial Transcript'.

Now, here is my question. So far, I have been the only applicant whose unofficial transcript loads as a webpage, but does not show any information regarding my ID or major. However, my application status still says that they have received all materials required and are still reviewing my application. Here is what it looks like:

For students who haven't been accepted and the page does not load, it looks like this:

Why doesn't mine look like the latter? I admit being the only one in which the situation has occurred, I am apprehensive.

    Did your unoffical transcript load like that from the first time you checked it--or did it just change to that? Weird!

    The problem is I don't know how long it's been like that.

    I didn't find out about the unofficial transcript until about 4 weeks ago, and when I first checked, it was like that. I don't know how long before it become that way.
