My high school transcripts have major errors in them and no one in the school system wants to help me fix them! I'm pretty sure I had more than a 0.0 GPA and I know wasn't on the girls' tennis team! (I'm a guy, I think I would remember the skirts!) Will this effect my chances at returning to college?
I am returning to college to finally get my bachelors. I am over the age of 24 and have a 2-year degree from a community college where I had a 3.6 GPA.
At the college I plan to attend, if you're over 24 and have attended college previously, you only need to submit college & high school transcripts with your application.
After being tired of the drama in high school, I eventually dropped out, got my GED, and went to a community college. Dropping out was one of the best things I ever did and allowed me to retain a small portion of my sanity.
Before they sealed my high school transcripts, I asked to see them and they begrudgingly allowed me to. I'm so glad I asked. There were just a few errors. According to my transcripts, I...
- Continued to attend high school a year after I dropped out
- Received only F's from 9th to 12th grade. This explains my 0.0 GPA.
- Was a 10th grader from 10-12th grade.
- Took Chemistry I four times in the same year.
- Took French I four times over the course of my high school years, while taking German and Russian. (I took each of these languages once. After the 11th grade, I determined that I was lucky to speak English and did not try a language again until college Spanish.)
- Was missing 1/2 a credit of Algebra. I still took higher level maths, which all require a complete Algebra credit as a prerequisite.
- Was on the Ladies' tennis team... which has two problems: All extra curricular activities required a 2.0 GPA and I have a penis.
As I said, no one at the school district seems interested in helping me with this problem. They've all been telling me someone else down the line is the person who might
be able to help.
It's so comical, but also sort of spending an evening with a psycho ex... you are reminded very clearly why you broke it off to begin with.
And a little back story, my high school has been accused of falsifying transcripts and incorrectly reporting dropouts
