international summer school.... factor into LSDAS gpa?

Postby domori » Fri Aug 10, 2012 12:54 pm

I spent two miserable summers abroad taking 9 credits each summer at a foreign university thinking the grades would factor into LSDAS gpa.
However after doing some research here, it doesn't seem like they will - although I'm still not clear how this works - can someone clarify this for me?

First summer, I took 3 courses - 9 credits - they show up on my US college transcript without grades - it simply states that I took these three courses at a foreign university.
Second summer, I also took 3 courses - 9 credits - they don't show up on my US college transcript because, well, I didn't need them for my graduation requirement, and I didn't bother filling out paperwork to my US college thinking I just need to send the transcript from the foreign university straight to LSDAS.

I did get stellar grades from all 6 courses, so I really want them to count towards my LSDAS gpa - do you guys think they will?

p.s. I already sent my US college transcript to LSDAS and grades summary has been produced.

that was my understanding too... but this post: http://www.top-law-schools.com/archives/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=56945&start=25 and what member im_blue said seems to say otherwise....
