Transcript Update issue

Postby ElvisAaron » Wed Feb 09, 2011 8:45 pm

I had my UG send an update with my fall grades, but for some reason LSACs report PDF has it showing 3 less credits than I actually have.(??!)
I emailed the registrar to see if they can confirm what was sent-my unofficial transcript that I can view online shows the full amount of credits...
Might not be a big deal (GPA didnt change) but in my eyes the 3cr less kinda makes it seem like I fucked off last semester and now have to take a heavy courseload this semester, which seems slacker-y and suspect.

too much thought goes into transcripts and what law schools think about them. That being said, do what you have to do to ensure they have accurate transcripts.

It could just as easily be a mistake by LSAC. When I first sent in my transcripts it didn't count my study abroad credits. I emailed and called LSAC several times, eventually receiving an email saying that based on the nature of the credits they couldn't be converted. When I sent in my updated fall transcripts it suddenly had counted the credits, and I received a snail mail letter from LSAC 'thanking' me for bringing up the issue.....4 months later....
