Does updating your transcripts slow down process?

Postby ThreeRivers » Sun Jan 01, 2012 3:20 pm

I currently have a LSDAS GPA of 3.44... after this semester I'll have one of 3.46 (lol no difference). If I send in an updated transcript it won't cause some schools to delay my decision (once see transcript has been updated) will it?

My expectation is that it delays. If its of little consequence to your GPA, it might not be worth it. If it increases the GPA by a larger amount (think .05) or pushes it into another range, then go for it.

If it pushes you above 25th/50th/75th percent, I'd say go for it.

It does not delay anything if you already have a valid transcript for LSAC to send to schools. Once LSAC receives the updated transcript, it will send the updates to schools. Schools will then append it to your file.
