    I am an incoming plebe and I was wondering if the USMMA required you to send an end-of-the-year transcript. I didn't see anything specifically about it (I may have skipped over it on accident) but I am assuming that they would like one. If you know, please tell me. Thanks :)

    I was wondering the same thing. I read and reread over the papers and I did not see anywhere that said you had to send one. I'm sure they would have called and asked for it if we skipped over it by accident.

    it was part of our sons graduation requirement to send final transcript to school you were attending.

    I did not turn one in at the end my senior year, nor did I see anything in our packet of information saying that we had to. (three years ago when I was an incoming plebe). I'm sure it hasn't changed.

    My DS went in this past year and we didn't send an end of the year transcript.

    That's right. Didn't have any problems. Granted, it wouldn't be very hard to grab one at the year and send it in if you're worried about it.

    It seems to me that this is the answer. Many schools automatically send out the final transcripts, so other people may not have actually had to do it themselves. That doesn't mean a transcript didn't go out.

    Bottom line, if someone called KP and was told the transcript was needed, then that is the official answer. Double check whether your school will send it or if you need to pick it up and send it yourself.

    Hey guys I have a quick question, I just accepted my appointment to the USMMA class of 2019 and was really wondering about the transcripts.. Last semester I had Economics AP and got a B average in that class, AB Calculus AP and also averaged a B, Physics 2 C AP and barely averaged a C passing grade, and English 4 Honors averaged with an A. This second semester of my senior year, I am doing very poorly in Physics 2 C (and it's my fault because I had a poor foundation in Physics 1 and still signed up for Physics 2 C AP) and am currently at a D average in the class. I still have one six weeks left to give the class my all in every single aspect, but I was wondering that if the USMMA asks for my final transcript, for the whole year, and see those not-so-great grades, do I run the risk of getting my appointment revoked? Please any help or reply from anyone will really help because although I am really studying hard right now, this is a constant question that is always making me nervous :(

    thanks

    You are not an incoming plebe but an incoming Plebe Candidate. Should you refer to yourself as "Plebe Soandso" instead of "Candidate Soandso" during indoc, you will find that this is not a small distinction.

    I never heard of anyone having their acceptance revoked over their final semester grades. I suppose it is possible if you fell below the minimum standards but if you were that close to the minimum standards you probably didn't get accepted anyway.

    Yes you will need a final official transcript.
