How do colleges find out about your advanced degrees?

Postby ScottRiqui » Mon Jan 07, 2013 1:21 pm

Looking at my LSAC Academic summary report, it lists that my Master's is an M.S., along with the years I attended, but there's no reference to what my graduate major was, or the GPA. In the section where the grades are broken out for my undergrad institutions, the space for my graduate school just says "See Transcript".

When LSAC sends your academic information to the schools where you've applied, do they also include a copy of *all* of your transcripts? I know that my graduate degree won't figure heavily into admissions, but I'd still like the adcomms to at least know what my degree is in, and how I did.

1. Yes, as long as you have submitted your graduate transcripts to LSAC, then LSAC will forward them to schools you apply to along with you undergraduate transcript.

2. When you fill out applications, list your graduate degree under the Education section (where it says to list ALL educational institutions attended), and include what your degree was in, your GPA, rank if applicable, etc.
