Transcript update policy

Postby canuck » Sun Oct 17, 2010 7:20 pm

Does anyone know what LSAC's policy is for upgrading transcripts after you complete a semester?
If I have already applied to all my schools and they are listed as complete, is it even necessary to send in the update?

(note: my grades this semester will dampen my GPA somewhat, so I'd rather law schools not see them)

Thanks!

There's no requirement to send in updated fall semester grades, which you probably don't want to do since your grades dropped. However, some schools have been known to request updated grades before making a final decision.

What if you have sent in your grades through, but not including your senior year, and decide you are going to reapply next cycle. Will i have to send in my grades for senior year? This may be a VERY stupid question but i have a 4.0 as of right now and will probably lose it. This is just kind of a "what if"

LSAC doesn't require you to, but it would be a huge red flag on your application if you're applying as a college graduate without all your grades in.
