unofficial withdraw

Postby mermaidprincess92 » Wed Jun 05, 2013 7:36 pm

Does an unofficial withdraw count in LSAC gpa? My undergrad school doesn't calculate it into overall GPA

Your school notes unofficial withdrawals on your official transcript?

Schools are more or less required to list any attempted credit on an official transcript.

unfortunately they do list it, but they haven't counted it against me when calculating my GPA. I have asked around and no one else at other schools seems to have even heard of unofficial withdraw so I'm not sure what to make of it :(

LSAC says UW is omitted, is that the same as nonpunitive???

My school gave out UW which wasn't counted in my school GPA but it counted as a 0 when LSAC calculated my GPA.

Are you sure about that? A friend of mine who went to Brown said they didn't show withdrawals on her transcript (they're also known for grade inflation there), so I'm curious if there's any real obligation there, or if some schools are really just that much better at giving their students nice-looking transcripts.
