Hi - I'm a UK student applying for the PhD program in maths at Stanford. On the math page it states two hard copy transcripts must be sent by mail by 1st December. I did not realise this until today, since I followed the instructions on the graduate admissions page which says you're allowed to send secure electronically-delivered transcripts instead - this is in fact the system my university uses; they do not do 'official' hard copy transcripts, as they are only validated electronically. I can't call Stanford as all offices are shut, and if I am to send the hard copies I must do so tomorrow, at a cost of at least £50. Is it safe to just use my electronic system and not mail the hard copies? I can hardly be blamed for following the official website, surely? Thanks in advance.
