LSAC messed up my transcript!

Postby godofcoffee » Fri Nov 19, 2010 5:27 pm

So question: it looks like LSAC took the listing of my majors on my transcript (Computer Science, Economics, Philosophy) and turned them into "COMPUTER SCIENCE, GENERAL, ECONOMICS" which I take to mean "general computer science" and "economics". I assume that this is for technical reasons, and I have listed my majors elsewhere as being Comp Sci, Econ and Phil - is this addendum-able? Will they also receive my school transcript and figure it out for themselves?

This is a huge pain - I only found it out as I was about to hit SEND.

You could just call LSAC on Mon to ask.

Ehhh, I just looked at it all again, and it looks like the major they list is the self-reported one. Also, my school transcript is part of the report, so I assume they'll be able to parse whatever nonsense the LSAC lists, right?

I have a question on this also. I'm a history/polisci major (lol right?) but on my transcript/summary report it just shows up as LIBERAL ARTS/LIBERAL ARTS.

Is this normal? I think I chose liberal arts because I couldn't find history under LSAC majors...

It doesn't matter, since the LSAC report also includes copies of your transcripts which presumably show the correct major(s).

this doesn't matter. just make sure your transcript/resume include the correct majors. most applications ask you for your major anyway on the form

If it makes you feel any better OP, they probably don't care what your major was anyway.
