Academic Summary Report Question

Postby RTFM » Wed Sep 01, 2010 11:54 pm

Sorry if this is super nit-picky... but under "transcript notes" on my Academic Report Summary, LSAC listed "academic honors" but did not list an award I won and an honor society I was part of (these are both listed on my actual transcript). Is this something worth calling them about, or do they just not list that kind of stuff even if it's on the transcript? Thanks!

Most likely, "Honors" denotes dean's list

Law schools won't care any more about your academic honors if they are listed by LSAC than if they are listed on your resume, so even if LSAC could put everything you've accomplished on your academic report summary it wouldn't be worth the call. Just send an up-to-date resume with each app, which you should be planning to do anyway.
