GPA Question

Postby Columbia11 » Wed Dec 15, 2010 4:21 pm

Do I have to submit my most recent (fall)GPA to LSAC? I sent out my law school applications three weeks ago; however, I just took took the LSAT this past Saturday. The reason why I ask is because I have a 3.8 cumulative GPA, but some how messed up this semester-3.2. I studied more for the LSAT than for school.

at 3.8 I doubt schools would be looking to your GPA to make a decision. You should send them an updated transcript but IMO it doesnt need to be right away, some schools havent even gotten grades yet.

Unless school's explicitly ask, delay as much as possible until apps are complete, in review, or have a decision rendered.

+1, It's not required unless they specifically ask for it. Some schools, however, don't seem to have rhyme or reason to who they ask necessarily, so don't assume you won't get a request... just that it's much less likely.

Unless the schools ask, there really isn't a reason to send it. Many people do because they have improved their GPA, so they send it with a LOCI; however, in your case I would hope the school wouldn't ask for it.
