Update Transcript with Class at Law School results?

Postby pdeturk » Tue Jan 10, 2012 10:26 am

As the final class in my masters degree my school allowed me to take a class at the law school associated with the university. I wasn't allowed to take the class for a standard grade because they didn't want me to have an impact on the curve. I had a scale of unsatisfactory, satisfactory, outstanding with an outstanding being equal to the top 10% of the class.

I just got my grade and earned an Outstanding. Is it worth updating my transcripts at law schools if I applied in late november? Will this push back my decision date? And do you think it would have any impact whatsoever on the eventual decision?

Edit: If I send a new transcript it will say M.A. earned. However, it will have absolutely no effect on my LSDAS GPA. I did search. Didn't see anything that addressed this scenario.

Hate to do this, but it was early when I posted this so no one was here.... Bump

It's up to you. Submit it, but it probably won't have an impact because it wasn't graded on the curve.

The M.A. may help a little.

But really it will probably come down to LSAT and GPA.

Good luck.
