Study Abroad

Postby Nickleb123 » Wed Aug 29, 2012 10:21 pm

I am currently studying abroad in Australia, at home I have a 3.8 gpa, but while I am here my grades have gotten worse because of the different system. My grades only carry back to my university as Pass/Fail, but when applying to law school will my grades here reflect on my Gpa?

Thanks

No, though schools can and in some cases will request your study abroad transcript (I think Columbia does as an example).

As long as you're there for one year or less you do not need to send a transcript to LSAC, and it will not affect your LSDAS GPA (though, as 2014 said, some schools will request a copy themselves). If you're there for more than a year, you will need to send it in.
