I was wondering if school counselor upload PDF of transcripts or enter data like we do in grades section?

It is very important for me because my pdf transcripts have class standing and shows how deflation is a big deal in our school.

Hi, thank you for asking your question! Unlike how you are filling out your information on the Common App grades section (or most other consolidated application sites), your guidance counselor will provide a full PDF transcript and school profile to the universities that you are applying to.

The transcript will show the schools you are applying to what your courses are, your overall GPA (most schools will re-calculate the weighted GPA in their own way), individual scores in each class, and upward trends. The school profile will show the average GPA and standardized test score for students at your specific high school and the courses offered to you.

Hope this helps!
