Are you supposed to update your transcript with fall grades?

Postby darkgreenfruit » Mon Dec 27, 2010 4:09 pm

I'm seeing some threads about people whose GPA's went up, but mine went down (all A's and A-'s and it went from like 3.83 to 3.81, nbd...and b/c I'm a transfer student my GPA from the other school played into effect for the LSAC's way of calculating, so when I had 3.83 at my current school it was a 3.85 on the CAS report). It's not that big of a deal and I don't think it will affect my chances if the schools saw that I went 0.01 or so down. But am I supposed to update my grades? If so how, and by when? One of my grades hasn't come in yet but the professor told me it's an A, so I'll probably end up with 3.82 or so for my current school grades and maybe 3.84 cumulative.

Some schools request it, and the way LSAC works, if you send in a transcript to update one, it'll update all. To update, basically request your transcript be sent to LSAC. Do it before the deadline if a specific school requires it, otherwise, you can do it whenever you want or not at all.
