senior fall grade counts?

Postby azhot » Sat Apr 04, 2015 4:48 pm

Hi


I am in my third year of undergrad and will apply to law school this 2015-2016 cycle. I will send in my transcripts after this spring semester ends.

However, I might need to take the December LSAT and apply to schools early in January. If I apply to schools in January, granted my senior fall grades are out and law schools must know that, will law schools require me to update my senior transcript?

The school might as for them, or they might not. I had a school ask for them, and I've heard of it happening to other people too - so it's definitely not rare.

Senior spring semester grades on the other hand, seem not to matter at all.

Being KJD will hurt regardless, take a year or two or more off

You can apply without the LSAT and your application will at least get in the door and update when you get a score.

If your updated grades improve your GPA, send them in to the LSAC as it is good for you. Otherwise hold onto them unless a school asks. When you matriculate you must submit a final transcript to the school, however.
