During the application process for graduate schools, I have the option of uploading GRE and TOEFL score reports that I 'printed to pdf' from the website. The score reports also show the other schools I sent official score reports to. I was wondering if the admissions committee could use this info and thus affect my chances of acceptance in any way? A little paranoia but could use a second opinion. Thanks.
In my year, there was a school that asked for this but I only wanted to send my general GRE scores, not my Physics GRE score---the PGRE was optional for this application. So, I just used Paint to draw giant ugly white box over the subject GRE scores (back then, the PDF version includes all tests taken, maybe that's still true, I'm not sure). Then I added a note on the ugly white box saying that I am not submitting subject GRE scores. I made the box very obvious and ugly to show that I'm not trying to hide the fact that I am altering the document (which isn't an official document anyways).
What I did was save the full web page, then edit the html contents to remove the parts I didn't want in there, while still leaving the page looking fairly authentic. Save the page as a pdf, and you're done!
