Informing schools that Fall 2010 grades will be submitted

Postby unattended bag » Wed Dec 08, 2010 6:36 pm

I'd like to send my fall grades to the law schools I applied to. It should raise my cumulative gpa from <3.0 to 3.0, so it's obviously important to me that they see this. Should I e-mail the schools and let them know I will be updating my LSDAS account with these grades once they are released, or is it better to not bother them?

Thanks in advance.

I don't think you need to tell them, since LSAC will automatically send out updated reports with the new transcripts and GPA to each of the law schools.

Thanks for the reply. That's true, but they might make a decision before they see those grades if they aren't expecting them.

Since you're going from <3.0 to >3.0, I would ask the schools to hold off on making any decisions until the new grades are in, because any decision made now will almost certainly be a rejection.
