Chalk Talk: Transcripts: The Facts
Transcripts tell a college several things about a student. They contain the student’s course selection, or the list of classes the student has taken in high school. This tells the college how rigorous the student’s classes have been. For example, a student who has taken several honors or advanced placement classes is going to look more competitive than one who hasn’t. But, of course, not every high school offers these classes, and another document called a school profile explains what courses are offered and how rigorous they are. Also, take into consideration that the rigor of course selection is different for different students. It can depend on what major the student wants in college, or at least what type of major; a student who wants to major in mathematics who has taken several art classes but no calculus classes might look suspicious to a college. Also included on the transcript is the grade point average, which, again, is dependent on the course selection to be accurately judged.
