Before showing the 2 ways students try to hide the facts and game the system (Admission and F1 Visa), don’t ever try to do this.
Is it ok to hide the facts? Well answers is No (decent answer).
- Hiding backlogs while sending transcripts
- Hiding multiple GRE Scores
Prime example can be found at this post – How to send transcripts (read the comments).
Some universities will not list backlogs in transcripts if you get a single transcript that lists all the courses in one page.
If you were to send individual mark sheets as transcripts, it will list all the backlogs.
Backlogs are bad, but some universities are aware of this and they ask for semester-wise transcripts.
Hiding Multiple GRE Scores
While appearing at F1 Visa interview, some students who took GRE multiple times try to take the GRE Score report mailed after first GRE attempt.
If student have improved the score, they have take GRE Score card that lists both scores.
If second or third GRE score is lower then first, then students try to hide the facts.
Do you know of other ways to hide the facts while applying for visa or admission?
