Question regarding getting a NP overturned.

Postby birchum » Fri Jul 29, 2011 5:37 am

So i'm trying to get a NP i received in community college turned into a retroactive withdrawal. My question to the TLS gods is whether or not I should include my transcript from the college i transferred to. I have a strong GPA from both CC and my transfer school. I fear that if I give up my transcripts from my transfer school, it would seem particularly douchey because of my grades. Whats you're opinion?

I know I have to give lsac all my transcripts. Im just applying to have a NP turned into a W at my CC through the exceptions committee at the school which deals with these kind of things and im wondering if I should give them the transcript from the college I transferred to. I think it might seem douchey because I had strong grades after I transferred. Sorry if I was unclear.

Yeah, I would send them everything possible to show them you are a conscientious student.

No one will think you are douche for getting good grades after you transferred.

That might be the wrong approach for trying to get NP -> W. Schools don't do that because you're a good student, they do it because there were some extenuating circumstances that caused you to get the NP. If you were just lazy, the fact that you got better grades later isn't an argument that typically works.
