transcript

Has anyone here worked for a greek life office before? Do you know how carefully they pay attention to the transcript? The reason that I ask is that I owe my previous university quite a bit of money and they are not going to release my transcript until that debt is satisified. I am good at producing simulated documents, but I am afraid that if they call my old college to verify that they sent the transcript, that I will get in trouble even if the info is correct.

I'm a little confused, especially when compared to your other thread. Do not falsify documents. How did you even get into another school with outstanding debt? How do you plan on paying fraternity dues if you can't pay for your education?

I should note that I have a certain amount of money that I have set aside each month for paying off of my debt. That will not increase or decrease based on anything else that is going on. But again, I am looking to know (preferably from people that work in a Greek Life office) whether or not they will call the previous institution.

They will.
Maybe not right away, but they will.

How is your new school even going to allow you to start classes if they don't have the transcript from your previous university?

In any event, what you're asking sounds shady and the fact that you would even ask something like this and talk about falsifying documents say a lot about your character. Not to mention that there might be some way that what you're doing could be criminal.

God help any fraternity that decides to pledge you.

If you join a fraternity with falsified records and it is discovered (and it always is), your membership can be revoked.

Not an expulsion, but a revocation. That's worse than expulsion, if you ask me.

That was the biggest red flag for me.

And you can't base a brotherhood on a lie.

Again, the information will be correct, I just don't want them to get a call saying I want to confirm this and then have questions pop up when they said they never sent anything. Even if the info is right, red flags might still pop up

Whether or not the information is correct is irrelevant. You will be found out. It will end badly.

random2009, do NOT contact me via DM. I do not work for a Greek Life office.


Troll?

No mention of a transfer in that thread:

I think it's a guy...who had gone to some summer recruitment parties. Look at his/her other posts.

OP: Honor, integrity, honesty, trustworthiness, etc. are traits all Greeks look for in potential members -- also what (future) employers look for in employees.
