Proving Myself

So, I applied for that job yesterday. I got the application filled out, printed out my unofficial transcripts and created a new resume. Then I get a phone call saying she has some questions about my application. First she tells me that even though I have had a job as a teacher she is unclear why my transcripts don't show that I have a degree OR enough credits to have even graduated. WHAT???? So, I look at my stuff and she is talking quarter hours, my transcripts are in semester hours so you have to multiply them by 2/3 or something like that. I call her back and explain her error. She then says that nowhere on the transcripts does it say that I was actually awarded a degree. Well, it does it just doesn't have the date. It's an unofficial transcript so who knows what tricks they play to make you pay for an official one. Fortunately I had my teaching file here with all of my information AND an official transcript. This pleased her since not only did it say that I was awarded a degree it also was in quarters because the university didn't switch to semesters until after I graduated. The crisis was averted and it actually sounds like I got the job. Good thing I didn't get snippy with her on the phone - as I was getting quite frustrated at the time.
