Call LSAC and ask.

If it's ungraded I doubt it matters.

If you did well in that semester abroad, definitely send it. My semester abroad helped bump my GPA over the 3.7 mark whereas my overall GPA from my UG was a 3.6x and this will definitely make a difference in LS admissions.

Thanks for following up with the response - I also got a GPA bump from my semester abroad.

Another related question (rather than starting a new topic) - How does it look to have the instructor for your semester abroad courses write one of your letters of recommendation?

One of the most obvious professors to write me a LOR (I took 2 classes from him and he advised me on my thesis) is notoriously unreliable for LORs, and I heard from a classmate that he just flat out didnt write him one, and complained that he had asked him to do one in the first place (This classmate also used him as an adviser for his thesis and was an excellent student). So I'm searching for other instructors who know me well.

I'm also wondering the same thing as I was planning on having a professor from abroad write my LOR.
