LSAC's stand on retaking classes

Postby FranchiZe48 » Mon Apr 19, 2010 1:25 pm

Does LSAC take in account retaking classes that you had a D or F in? So if I retook a class and received an A after failing it last year, what will LSAC take? The F, the A or Both and average it out?

Thanks

If both grades appear on the transcript they take both grades and it averages, even if the school doesn't count it. Some schools have a policy of actually removing the original grade form your transcript. In that case, they never see the grade and it doesn't count.
