are AP credits included in the LSAC report?

Postby Opuntia » Sun Aug 04, 2013 2:48 am

I have some AP credits on my transcript, but they are not included into the LSAC report as uncovered credits. is that correct? what should I do not now? Call LSAC?

My UG gave grades for AP credits and those bumped my LSDAS GPA. It was pretty awesome actually.

My UG does not give grades to AP, but only list AP as accepted transferred credits to my UG transcript.

my question is : Will LSAC include AP credits as unconverted credit hours on the LSDAS report?

They didn't on mine, and my UG didn't assign a grade to AP credits. The credits simply aren't mentioned, but schools can see that information on my actual transcript.

On my LSAC transcript, AP credits were treated as unconverted credit hours, same as pass/fail courses.

Many thanks for reply.

should I bother to call LSAC to list my AP credits as unconverted credits on my LSDAS report?

No they do not convert them to credit hours. I had 11 listed on my college transcript and none of them were calculated into my LSAC GPA, even though law schools saw them

That makes my Degree Semester Hours less than 120 on the LSAC report. is that correct?

I don't think it matters, the unconverted units don't count for anything. As long as your UG is granting you a degree you should be OK.
