Final UG grades?

Postby PinkCow » Mon Feb 28, 2011 9:43 pm

So...Is there a possibility of admission being revoked if Spring grades are.. low enough? Right now I'm below median and slightly above 25th for GPA. If I do worst case scenario (i.e., 3.2 for Spring), I'll be pretty much at 25th, if not a smidge under.

Problematic? Or no sweat?

don't send your transcript to LSAC. send your final transcript directly to the school.

What will that accomplish? Would that not affect their USNWR numbers then?

So, maybe not that big of a deal?

yup. i mean, if there's a precipitous gpa drop they might still care. probably not, though.

+1. I've been wondering how this works as well.

Good to know I've got a healthy community of slackers.

Actually, for me, I've just got some seriously pain in the a** math courses that I'll be lucky to pull a B in. Yeah...

Schools report your lsac gpa. Don't fail any classes (as in receive a literal F) and you'll be fine.

I don't even want to say how horrible I did my last semester (didn't fail any classes, but I certainly checked out). Was wondering if my acceptance would get revoked. A year later, here I am.

this is the precise reason that they ask you to submit your final transcript directly to the school, and not to LSAC.
