Can't remember High School GPA?

Postby feralinfant » Fri Sep 28, 2012 7:05 pm

I honestly can't remember my high school gpa and there is no way I still have any old report cards at my parents house. I also now live in a different state from my high school...

Thoughts on just not filling in the space for the High School gpa?

Call your high school. They keep records.

I couldn't either. I had to mail a written request and a check for $5 because my transcript was too old to look up in their current computer system.

I do say, my old fellow, can you happen to borrow one of those horseless carriages I've heard so much about?

Seriously, though, a phone call will clear this up.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't realize that apps leave a space for you to fill in your high school GPA. You should check your high school's website and see if you can order it online--I did this and was able to obtain it in a day. It also wouldn't hurt to call up the registrar directly and explain the situation (which I did as well) if you are in a time crunch.

With that being said, it's probably not a big deal if you can't provide the numbers. Some schools have PDF applications available in addition to their LSAC Flex App. The LSAC Flex Apps include more optional stuff to fill out, so if you're really worried, you can check if the PDF apps even have an optional space for high school GPA and rank.

If my HS GPA were garbage I would not think twice about leaving it blank. I'm pretty sure they don't care what it was; they just want to know where you went.

I find it hysterical that some of you ordered your HS transcripts for an optional question on a law school application. Absurd.
