transcript and traffic ticket question

Postby ODB » Thu Jan 21, 2010 3:53 pm

My registrar sent in the wrong transcript(didn't include fall grades and lowered my gpa by about .1); they suggested to remedy the situation they could work individually with law schools to get them the right transcript. Will schools accept a transcript this way?

Two years ago I got a speeding ticket for under $150; fought it and won. Do I need to include this?

Usually not. Certain schools will specifically ask "including minor traffic offenses" in which case you should send an addendum, but it's not a big deal AT ALL so don't sweat it.

I have already requested that the registrar do this; but the fact that it takes about two weeks is worrisome. Most would already consider my applications "late" so I would like to make the process as fast as possible.
