Should I send in the supplemental information that the immigration officer asked for during my interview?

Asked over 1 year ago - Denver, CO

My wife recently filed for me as an immediate relative . I filed to adjust my status from h1b to PR . Prior to h1b , I was under a student visa . We had our interview , but during our interview , the immigration officer gave me until May , 2013 to send in a I - 20 and transcripts for one of the schools I was enrolled in before I was under h1b . The problem is , that particular school has closed down and there is no way to obtain those transcripts . I was advised by an attorney that , based on where I am , I should just send in the I - 20 if I can't obtain those transcripts . To my surprise , I just received my I - 797 for my I - 485 application saying that my application has been approved and that I can expect to receive my PR card soon . Should I still send in the said I - 20 and transcripts or not ?
