Yes.


Yea, if the UG has any request for all transcripts just like law schools, which includes CC, OP may already have serious C&F problems. Lying to UG about CC classes seems almost as bad as lying to law schools. They'll know he didn't disclose to UG if they pull his UG apps and cross-reference with his LS apps, something I'm pretty sure is routine procedure.

Cornell with ~168.

While I do not condone this sort of intentional deception by any means, I am genuinely curious how often this actually comes up. It strikes me that it must be fairly common for someone to inadvertently omit a community college course, and the only C&F story I can find on Google is a secondhand story about someone who left off an entire semester load of Fs. I would guess most people who do this get away with it. (At least if their name isn't E. White...)

I also think it is extremely unfortunate that the US-News-centric law school admissions precludes law schools from knowingly forgiving that sort of transcript. While it certainly represents a minor lapse of judgment to get a semester of Fs in community college, the punishment in terms of LSAC GPA is grossly disproportionate, especially considering few community college students have reason to be aware of LSAC disclosure requirements.
