We decided to use DHL university express to send the transcripts to the Stanford University as the deadline was just 8 days away , we called their customer care and scheduled a pickup at our home. The DHL guy came at the right time with packing supplies , promptly everything was taken care of and we were given an airway bill tracking number.

The status of the shipment was tracked using the online tracking facility provided by DHL , really neat feature. Moreover they offer students a 50% discount on express services.

And you wont believe it , the package reached the university in 3 days , now thats what we call express , my experience with DHL university express has been A+ and i am planning to use their services for the rest of the transcripts too.
