Should I include reading list with transcript for scholarships?


Recommended Posts

I am trying to decide if I should include my sons's reading list with his high school transcript. This would be attached to his transcript for schools he has already been admitted to, for scholarship purposes at those schools, which are state flagship universities. Please see his list of books below. On the one hand, he has read some pretty high level books. On the other hand, there are some standard high school level books he has not read. Also, he has credit for World Lit and American Lit., and is working on British and Medieval lit his senior year. He has a few books left for American Lit. but I want to make sure the list has enough books to support the Am lit credit he has listed for 10th grade (I did not list it as honors). I did not list his textbooks, otherwise - just sending in a standard transcript. He wants to double major in accounting and English and has a high SAT score, if that makes any difference.
