My advice is to not send the transcript. If the LSAC doesn't find out, then great. If it does, then it will just notify you that you must submit all transcripts before your application is complete.


How would the OP explain that for C&F purposes if it comes to that? I doubt C&F will find out but some states do ask for your LSAC Number etc (Texas does, I think, but I could be wrong).


The correct response to that post wasn't a question, but a head shake.

OP, don't listen to futurelawstudent1. Disclose everything - it's not worth the potential fallout.

From what others have posted of UT's rules, it seems like you've got a good shot of making this go away. Make the calls others have suggested to the Dean and see if they'll work with you. Generally, school administrators would like to see their students succeed, as it reflects positively on the institutions where they were educated.

Some Community Colleges replace F, W, NC, and D grades if the student takes the course again and gets a B or an A. That was how my Community College worked.

So you should check whether your Community College has the same policy and re-take the course, getting either a B or an A. This will replace the grade on the transcript assuming our Colleges are the same, and the NC will disappear.
