So...I Failed a Pass/Fail Course

Postby JTIII » Sun Jun 02, 2013 2:15 pm

I know, pretty embarrassing. I just graduated from Georgetown, planning on taking the LSAT in October and applying this fall/winter. Will an "unsatisfactory" on my transcript (that isn't factored into my GPA) hurt my chances of admission?

It counts toward your LSAC GPA, so yes, it will hurt.
