International transcripts?

Postby rachelwang712 » Tue Oct 25, 2011 10:36 pm

I hv sent my transcripts (double degree, one in sh in china, and one in Tokyo) to CAS. I heard that they will generate a report according to both ur gap and the school u attend.

My friend, who has a gap of 3.5+, ended up "above average". I am kinda worried. My gap is good, 3.81, but would I also end up above average?
Also, will adcomm see my original transcripts in addition to CAS report?

No one here can tell you what your evaluation will be. It doesn't just depend on your gpa - it also depends on your undergraduate institution. "Above average" or "superior" sound likely to me.

Yes, your transcripts will be sent along with the evaluation to law schools.

Also, the abbreviation is 'GPA' (Grade Point Average).

Thanks.

The "gap" is a typing mistake...I am sorry...

So adcomm will also treat above average and superior in the same way?

No, "superior" is definitely better. It might not make that much of a difference outside of Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and Chicago though. Students have got in to all of the lower ranked schools with "above average" evaluations and high LSAT scores.
