LSAC GPA Study Abroad Question

Postby Wbran11 » Mon Dec 23, 2013 8:55 pm

Looking to see if my study abroad grades will apply to my LSAC GPA. I know similar questions have been asked, but I figured I would ask for my exact situation:

Studied Spring 2013 through AIFS in Ireland (Four months total)
AIFS is considered a "partner affiliate" for my school, but is not associated with my school.
Classes at an Irish University. On the same level as normal Irish students. No special treatment.
Classes transferred back to home university as actual grades (4.0 scale) that affect my UG GPA.
Classes show up as "Transfer Credit" on my transcript

Wondering if my grades abroad will affect my UG GPA. Also, should I have my transcript from my Irish university sent to the LSAC as well?

Thank you.

Call LSAC and ask, but they will almost certainly want them.

They will also likely be factored in, but thats less sure.

They will almost certainly count if you got graded credit from your American school.
