Any way to fax or email transcripts?

Postby p3aceandl0v3 » Mon Nov 25, 2013 11:59 am

I'm sending in overseas transcripts to the LSAC, and I'm worried about them getting into the LSAC and being processed in time for me to send out my transcripts. Any way to email or fax them or get them in faster?

You have to mail them, but your undergrad may offer rush transcripts. Call your registrars office and ask.

I called LSAC about this since my undergrad offers an official electronic copy. Apparently LSAC is currently testing accepting official, electronic transcripts but only from certain schools. I was not told which schools, but only that my undergrad was not one of them. No word on whether this will become a viable option in the future, but it is apparently in beta.

Hope this helps :D

Thanks for the info! It'd be awesome for future applicants if they went that route.

This might be a dumb question, but for international transcripts, do you have to add the institutions to your profile, or do you just have them sent in? There doesn't seem to be a button to add international transcripts.

Hey, late response to your question but you should email LSAC and request them to add an international institution to your profile.

I'm having the same fear as you - I've had my school send transcripts already, but knowing how notorious my current country of residence is for losing stuff in the mail, I'm pretty worried... sent the transcripts 2 weeks ago and nothing registered on LSAC yet.
