So, a while ago I went to my university's study abroad office and requested a proof of study abroad- I gave the desk all my information, and the office worker said they would e-mail me when it was ready. It seemed to be taking them a while, so I recently went back to the office to inquire about it, and was told to email the person in charge. I emailed him, and he said he never got my information, and that I shouldn't need a proof of study abroad because my university puts everything needed on the official transcript- when/where I studied abroad, the credits, and the grades. However, the course title is just "JAPANESE 3RD YEAR-ABROAD", and I was told I should get a letter that said what the actual course titles were, so I asked him if I could get something more concrete. He said that he was really busy and it would take him a long time to find the course titles and such, so if I really wanted it he could maybe have something for me in 10 business days.
So now I'm worried it won't get to me in time- if it takes too long and I have to mail off my application with out it, would that significantly hurt my chances? Or would having the location, date, grades, and credits of my study abroad on my transcript be enough that my application will still be acceptable?
If I understand correctly, all of your courses were simply written as "Japanese 3rd year - abroad?" If that is the case, then you will need to push for a letter noting what each course title really was.
