LSAC GPA and Internship Credit

Postby T-Account » Wed Aug 10, 2011 7:46 pm

During undergrad I did an internship for credit. I received an actual letter grade instead of pass fail because there were writing assignments involved throughout the internship and a final paper for the "class." Will LSAC count this towards my GPA even though it's technically not a class in the traditional sense? This class was 6 credits of A's so I'm really hoping that LSAC does not discriminate about the nature of my classes (this is the only class I have taken that was not a traditional class).

Thanks in advance.

If it's on your transcript, I'm not sure there's any way for LSAC to tell the difference. I have grades from being a teacher's assistant, twice, and a research assistant, twice. They are listed on my transcript the same way my regular classes are and were counted towards my degree.

Yes. I had a couple of those. If it has a letter grade and a credits attached, it will count.
