    Sending transcript of interrupted undergrad course

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi everyone, I'd like to know if it's necessary to send the transcript of the first undergrad program I was enrolled, since I spent only 2 semesters on it and then moved to economics. Also, here in my country people usually does a Master before applying to a PhD program worldwide.

    I have major concerns about my bad grades in the first program, it was a tough year for me, while my performance at the economics/math classes was reasonable good.

    Should I send only the economics transcript?

    You are required to send the transcript of EVERY institution you've attended, iirc.

    Thanks. Do you know if they would mind the bad grades even after a Msc/econ undergrad with good performance?

    I had a bad first year at my first college also, and still got into the PhD program at my home university... just my 2 cents!

    You definitely need to send everything, and I wouldn't worry about it too much. I think there's plenty of people who had rough first years (myself included) and still end up getting into a program we're happy with. Additionally, this is something you can (briefly) address in your SOP! "Although I had a rough first year studying _____, and feel my grades in that year did not reflect my best effort, once I entered the economics program I really fell in love and decided to pursue a PhD program..." etc. etc. I think AdComs can piece together that story.

    Thank you for the replies, guys. I appreciate it a lot. I think I should definitely not care too much about my bad grades and continue to perform well in economics
