updated transcripts ---> do they care?

Postby quick_question » Mon Oct 01, 2012 12:32 pm

My apps are going out this week, so obviously, this semester's grades will not be on them. My LSAC GPA is 3.97.
I am considering taking a course pass/fail this semester (I am complete with undergrad in December and I hate one of my classes).

Question is: a) Will the schools be asking for updated transcripts in December? b) When they see that I have taken a course pass fail (this is my first one in all of Undergrad), are they going to care?
FWIW, I am applying to all t-14 except Berkeley and NW.

They will want updated transcripts and they won't really care if you take one or two pass/fails in UG, but if there are many of them, it's a little weird from what I've heard.

They'll ask after you enroll but before you start. If you get waitlisted/held, and you don't send in an update, they assume your GPA went down. Technically, you're contractually required to send that stuff in as it comes out, but no one does and no one really cares. No one will care about a P/F course (I had several my senior year while applying to law schools).
