Send Senior Year Transcripts to LSAC or directly to school?

Postby aspenex » Wed May 30, 2012 9:34 am

My Cumulative GPA will increase with my grades from Senior year, should I send the Transcript to LSAC and then have them send it to the schools or should I send my transcript directly to the Law Schools I am waitlisted at. Thank you

Send one to the school you deposited at because they need it and send one to LSAC to update your GPA.

I have read on a few websites that you send it to LSAC. For example, read the last line on here http://www.law.stanford.edu/program/degrees/jd/jd_application/#overview

So you haven't made a decision yet? I had it sent directly to the school I committed to, but if you haven't committed, you could always contact the school and/or LSAC and ask which they prefer.

Send to LSAC so they can upgrade your GPA on your report; the schools don't want to go through the LSAC GPA voodoo themselves. Once LSAC has processed it, send LOCI to waitlist schools and reference your improved GPA as a result of your academic trends.

You'll still need to send one to the school of your matriculation later this summer, but wait until you know what school that is.
