is this necessary?

Postby secretasianman » Sat Jan 23, 2010 3:47 pm

Im a senior and took 2 classes last summer at a CC (pass/fail) and passed with no grades. I didn't report this on any of my apps since it wouldn't effect my GPA. Also, it hasn't even transferred over to my undergrad institution yet (transcript at CC held up because of a parking ticket). Do I need to report this once it transfers over even though it doesn't effect my GPA?

what will happen if it doesn't get on file until I've been accepted to some schools? because it hasn't even transferred over yet and then I have to send it to LSAC which will take weeks.

The answer is yes. It matters. If you want to take the risk, don't do it. But you might get burned. If you can't get it done before deadlines, then apply next year. It's already very late.

Nothing will happen if you get accepted before they learn about it, though.

And learn some patience.

agreed - it matters - it won't affect your acceptance or anything but you need to send them ALL transcripts because they ask for ALL transcripts. Not sending one will cause you problems down the road when you apply for admission to the bar.

How many people need to say 'yes' before you get it? LSAC requires transcripts from every institution you've attended, even if you have only 'pass' grades. It's your own fault you waited so long.

+1

I was placed on academic probation because I didn't care about dropping a few classes I took at community college, and had to explain it in an addendum. Reporting it lowered my LSAC GPA by .08, but I wasn't willing to risk getting caught trying to game the system.

OP, have the school send the transcripts.
