Courses taken after college graduation

Postby shinobi99 » Tue Sep 18, 2012 5:02 pm

Hello everyone,

I graduated from college with a decent but not stellar gpa. I took some courses after graduation at a foreign university, as well as paralegal courses at a local american university because I was just interested in the material. I did well in these courses, receiving all A's except one, and wanted to show this to the adcoms somehow, perhaps as to convince them of an upward trend in my grades.

However, I was wondering whether it is even possible to submit these post-graduation transcripts that are not part of my main degree to LSAC so that it will be part of my file. I know that the post-graduation grades are not part of LSAC GPA but I still wanted some way of notifying the adcoms that I have been active in learning new things. So my first question is, do these factors affect my application in any way (I can't see how it could hurt), and second, how do I incorporate these information into my application?

Oh and I was wondering whether I could add these transcripts to my academic report, but it wasn't obvious how to do so.

Won't help you because it doesn't help them for their medians.

They won't help you but you are expected to submit them. Just submit those transcripts as you would your UG transcripts.
