PLEASE READ - LSAC report question

Postby rjh456 » Tue Jan 11, 2011 9:45 pm

I made a huge mistake and didn't send an official transcript request form to the international university where I did my graduate dregree, so I'm now missing a transcript from my law school report. I have completed and submitted all my applications, paid the fees, etc, without realizing this, and LSAC failed to mention all of that until I hit the send button on my apps. If I don't get this transcript into LSAC and have them process it by Feb 1st (deadlines of most schools I'm applying to) have I missed the deadline? Or is the deadline to submit the application form itself, in which case I have....? Please Please help me figure out this unfortunate situation...

I'm sorry I don't know the answer to this. If I were you, I would call LSAC and discuss this with someone who can actually give you an unequivocally correct answer.

Call your law schools, too. You may be allowed to send in your transcripts direct to them.

That's what I was thinking too, but without the transcript my score report is incomplete and LSAC won't send it out right...?

Oh, gotcha. :? Yeah, that's a good question. Honestly, your best advice is definitely to call ASAP. If it's any comfort, I don't think most law schools care all that much about your graduate GPA.

Most schools' deadlines apply to when you submit. Some schools stipulate a date after the deadline that your file must be complete.

Regardless, applying at deadline and without your issue greatly reduces your chances of admission. I would try getting the transcript in asap, and if the cycle doesn't work out well, reapply.

BTW it doesn't take too long to process transcripts. Get the university to do a rush service and send it to LSAC using express mail like FedEx (of course pay for the rush and the express mailing), and LSAC can process it in 1-2 days. I got my transcript processed 3 days after I requested it, but my school is in Philly (near LSAC) and they send it out the same day.
