If I don't have an LSAT score on record yet (will take for first time in Oct), will the LSAC calculate my Law School GPA beforehand if i send in all my transcripts now? I graduated in May. I'm asking b/c it's something that would be useful to know to see what score I should aim for.

do you know how long that process usually takes? From the time you submit your transcript to the final calculation of your LSDAS gpa?

You have to have your school mail the transcripts with a form that is provided by LSAC. Once they receive the transcripts it takes a few days for them to do their part at LSAC. I'd say from the day they are mailed to the day they update on your profile takes up to 2 weeks max probably.

I don't think there's any general timeframe, actually. I could see my ASR the same day my transcript was marked "received," but it took them forever (2 weeks or so) to get it from when the transcript was mailed to them. I did send mine with the form mentioned above, but I've heard elsewhere on this forum that they will still process your transcript without it, it just might take longer. So that might be a factor, but I think in general, as with all LSAC transcript questions, TCR is to just send it and wait for them to do what they do.
