I'm really stressed out and worried that I might blemish my GPA while I'm here. I read on LSAC's website that I don't have to send the transcript to LSAC if I've studied abroad less than a year. But what about individual schools? What is Harvard's policy with international transcripts, for example?


Why didn't you look into this before studying abroad? With a wildly disorganized education system (read: best education system in the world, you'd think someone might have written about it before?

Harvard's Website makes it seem fairly clear, no?... its referering to the LSAC service btw
If you completed any postsecondary work outside the US (including its territories) or Canada, you must use this service for the evaluation of your foreign transcripts. The one exception to this requirement is if you completed the foreign work through a study abroad, consortium, or exchange program sponsored by a US or Canadian institution, and the work is clearly indicated as such on the home campus transcript.?

As for higher education.. not so much. What's more, Finland's high test scores are more related to their commitment to social equity. Everyone has a decent education. They beat us on average, but our best schools are better than their best schools. I've found that the same could be said of the girls here.


Totally didn't read beyond the headline... hahaha. Wait, really? I thought those nordic countries were all super hot. My dreams have been crushed.

if you are abroad through your school's abroad/exchange program, you won't need a separate one as long as you follow your school's credit transfer guidelines. Ask your abroad adviser.
