How does LSAC compute courses that don't list a grade?

Postby DavidYurman85 » Sun May 15, 2011 2:47 pm

I have two three credit courses on my transcript that have no grade listed.

Anyone have any experience with this or know if the courses will be included into my LSAC gpa? My school doesn't include them in their calculation (I know this doesn't mean that LSAC won't...).

Thanks in advance!

a pass/fail class will not be computed. Did you pass?

It won't affect your LSAC GPA.

it wasn't a pass/fail course. they're courses that i did not withdraw from and the professors never gave a grade either way. the course credit is listed on the transcript too.

nope and they are not included in my gpa either. they are just listed as:

intro to political science 3 credits
communication policy 3 credits

That's odd, I think they will look at it as a pass and not care

Unless it's a 'Fail'.
