LSAC receiving transcripts...when should I start worrying?

Postby Cali_App_333 » Sat Dec 29, 2012 8:25 am

I requested some transcripts to be sent out on the 20th and the transcripts orders were processed within the 20th, 21st, and 22nd respectively. As of now, LSAC has not received one of them. I attached a transcript order form so I don't think that's the issue and I know the LSAC offices were closed this week, but apparently online updates were still going on so I don't know if that's it either. At what point should I start getting worried that not one of these transcripts has been received by LSAC yet? Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't be too worried yet. As you said, it's the holidays to begin with. Further, LSAC has a tendency of having some slow turnaround when it comes to transcripts and letters of recommendation. I'd wait until we're through the holidays (like Wednesday, January 9th) to make sure LSAC has had the time to process everything that has come in over the holidays. It might still not be up, but at least then you've given them a shot to get things together and they'd be able to tell you what their expected turnaround time would be.

mine took a couple weeks, and they had a problem processing mine, but it was because my transcript was highly irregular. About an hour after I called them it was straightened out.

Once the holidays are over, just give them a call if it's still not up.

I wouldn't worry just yet. I requested that a transcript be sent on the 18th, and I just received a notification from LSAC that it was received this morning. So, maybe give it a few more days. :)

If the orders were processed on the 20th and 21st, my guess is LSAC probably just now received them in the mail. It will likely be another 10 days or do until they're processed.
