I'm considering not including it as my 1st year marks were pretty terrible. My 2nd year went well, but I suspect my 1st year might give a bad impression and disqualify me for many professors.
In such a case, which (if any) are a good idea:
- Include the transcript, don't mention anything in the email
- Include the transcript, explain reason for bad marks in the email.
- Don't include the transcript. Mention good GPA received this semester.
- Don't mention the transcript.
