CC Transfer Grades

Postby coldshoulder » Wed Apr 06, 2011 1:53 pm

I took two community college concurrent enrollment courses in my junior year of high school. They were math classes, I slacked hardcore, and did terribly. It's looking like they would bring my good UG GPA of 3.7 down to a 3.5. Is there any way not to send these record to lsac, and if not, how can I explain that I did a great job in UG and should not be penalized for two unimportant math classed in high school?

I'm pretty sure you have to send them. You can always write an addendum if you wish, but your LSAC GPA is what it is.

I don't think there is anyway of disregarding those grades. College classes are college classes.

Damn, I figured as much. The difference between a 3.7 and 3.5 is huge for the T20, I'm going to talk to an advisor and see if I can completely wipe them off my record, then retake them this summer before graduating in August.

Edit: not possible. I'll have to aim as high as possible on my Lsat and write a GPA addendum.

can your advisor do stuff like that? i think if anything you have to beg the CC you took the classes at. i can't see them budging. i begged a professor who gave me two F's (haha) and he was just like..."lemme think about it, no."
