Transcript Anomalies -- Can You Help Me?

Postby i_Pernix » Mon Dec 19, 2016 11:58 pm

Hey guys. I'm applying to law school. My GPA is great -- above a 4.0 (for LSAC recalculation) and 4.0 raw.

However, I have a non-punitive, passing 'W' for withdrawal (freshman year, just one class) because I didn't want to take the class anymore and it wasn't contributing to my major.

I also have an 'Incomplete - A,' for when I was non-punitively assigned an incomplete due to an emergency, but allowed to complete the final exam at a later date, at which my grade, an 'A,' was put next to the incomplete status.

Both of these are non-punitive, but will top law schools such as Yale and Harvard raise an eyebrow?

Seems like something that could easily be cleared up at an interview. If you get the LSAT you need, I doubt there will be a problem.

I mean, do they even look at the transcript in such detail, or just the GPA?

I do believe they will, but there are people who admit to crime and still get into YHS. One or two NON-punitive will not raise any eye brows. If it was a whole semester? But thats not the case, youre fine
