LSAC WTF

Postby bruss » Fri Mar 09, 2012 3:00 pm

As some of you know my GPA is in the shitter so today I finally decided to take my head out of an LSAT book and review my academic summary report. I knew my GPA was not as low as they put so I kept at it for an hour, come to find out damn LSAC freaking counted my grades from a transfer school TWICE. To make matters worse this was the worst semester ever. I called them and stayed on the phone for 2hrs trying to get it straightened out. I finally got it fix. raised GPA .23.

But here comes the kicker. While going through my transcript the LSAC lady notified me that they noticed a "U" grade that they didn't count before, as you know U grades are counted as F's. I also noticed they didn't notice the "U", but I thought they didn't count it because it did not have any credit, it was reported as 0.0 credit. I then told her her that the U didn't have any credit next to it so how can she claim that the F was worth 3 credits. She then goes on to explain to me that if the college doesn't report the amount of credit for the class then it is counted as 3 credits. WTFFF. I then explain to her that the class was worth only 1 credit, but she still says since they didn't report it it will count as 3 credits. She then goes on to explain the lsac multiplier which multiplies all unreported credit by 3....well 0x3=0. I asked her to email my the documents that state this rule....i have a feeling that imma have to call her back and raise hell.


tl;dr: check over you academic summary report

If it was worth 1 credit, then why don't you call your JC and have them correct it? If it was worth 3 credits (or more) wtf are you complaining about

I've tried explaining it to the my cc but they can't wrap their head around it. I tell them that its worth 1 credit and they say I didn't earn any credit. This cc isn't the most competent.

You gotta be aggressive about it. Keep calling your cc.
