I'm all set to start law school this fall. In reading this forum, though, I realized that I didn't do something that I should have in my applications: submit transcripts for not only my UG, but also previous college courses taken in high school. I took 4 of these, each at a different school, all straight As. Two of them were actually taught in high school by high school teachers, who had arranged with local colleges to give us college credit for them. It just did not occur to me that this was relevant to law school admissions.
Anyway, how bad can this be? They were all As, not like I was trying to hide anything... It seems like my main options are:
a) Call Admissions, tell them the situation, ask what to do--the answer will most likely be to send the transcripts.
b) Just send the transcripts and see if anyone says anything about it.
c) Order the transcripts, then call Admissions, explain that they're coming, and seek absolution.
I kind of like c). Any thoughts, comments, reassurances, predictions of doom?

Open door (c). Since it won't lower your GPA (unless you had a >4.0 GPA), this shouldn't be a big deal at all. But don't ask admissions what you should do. Show them that you're already on top of the issue and apologize for your oversight and any resulting inconvenience.

I did the exact same thing, same grade circumstance, too. As TM said, just send the transcript to LSAC and inform the law school. They will be fine with it. Mine had absolutely zero problems with it. I imagine it's a fairly common mistake.
