Is there any gray area on how LSAC determine F's?

I have a few bad grades from community college. Mostly academic reinforcement classes. Wasn't focused on school in those days, stopped going (FML). I received a U, CE, R and RE as grades. None of those grades were ever calculated into the GPA from that community college. Will LSAC just count those classes as F's anyway?

I don't even know what those letters stand for. Your best bet is contacting LSAC, but perhaps there are other ways of mitigating this. Can you withdraw from these classes retroactively?

I dont know what those grades are, but if those are punitive, they will probably count against you unless they were remedial classes. LSAC dropped me from a 3.4 to a 2.7

Good luck.
