in progress courses on transcript

Postby walterwhite » Wed Sep 04, 2013 5:58 pm

Does law services include courses in progress in the fall semester of senior year in law reports? Obviously i have no grades from these classes, but I'm just asking because I switched a couple of classes just now AFTER I submitted my transcript (rendering the transcript I sent out 2 days ago inaccurate, technically).

I understand law schools do not care what courses you take, but I'm just wondering if I should send an updated transcript or if that would just lead to confusion for the LSDAS people.

Also if it matters I switched into a class related to law. I've read enough TLS to know that definitely does not help me, but some posters have suggested it may hurt. Is this true? Or will it have no impact?


ps- If it was at all unclear my school includes courses in progress at the end of the transcript. that's why i'm asking.

pps- LSAC has already processed the first transcript. Only took them 2 days :shock:

Send in an updated transcript when you have grades for those classes.

This does not matter. At all.

Send in your updated transcripts in late December when grades come out. Not all schools will have looked at your application at that point and many won't have made a decision by then. If you do well fall semester and boost your GPA, it can help your chances at schools that haven't made an admissions decision at that point.
