Quick GPA question

Postby Dr. Nefario » Thu Dec 11, 2014 2:36 pm

If I raised my LSAC GPA .05 this semester, should I submit a new transcript to LSAC or schools i applied to?

I suppose that really depends on what the X.YZ number started as? I 'think' we can just submit updated transcripts? I don't know. I certainly am sending in a short note, but not only for the increased GPA for other honors too.

I would definitely send in an update.
I'm planning on sending in an updated transcript for graduate work that doesn't even affect LSAC GPA.

Also - congrats on raising your GPA!

I think in the Spivey thread it was mentioned that a GPA update for >0.05 should definitely be sent (uploaded to LSAC). I don't think there's a downside. Congrats!

How about for someone whose GPA is dropping? Will I have to update my transcript before I'm accepted? Applying to CCN

They may ask for your fall grades, but you don't have to volunteer them if they reflect poorly on you.
