So, I have no direct advice as to the workings of lsac.org, but I'm also a multi-UG applicant and at the top of my "Transcripts" page this blurb is highlighted: "

To add an institution you have attended, click on the applicable Add Institution button below and follow the directions. To make a correction write to LSACinfo@LSAC.org."

So it seems like it's possible to change it after the fact, you just have to talk to a human to do so.

How did you decide which UG to make the main one and which to make other?

My main issue /confusion is that the school I'm currently listing as other I have both an UG from and a bunch of grad school courses, seems to me that I should list this twice but there's no such option and I need to select either undergraduate or graduate.


I only have one degree-granting institution so that's separated for me. I would recommend calling lsac. For all their reputation as a backward organization I've found them to be pretty damn great on the phone.

I'd bet they go with making the one that awarded you an UG degree first the main one. A lot of their language about when grades count revolves around being awarded your first degree.

Just call LSAC and ask. It's probably correct that you should go with the institution that granted your first degree (as in the one you got first in time, regardless of whether it was a day or two earlier than the other), but this question is only going to get answered by asking the people who put the materials together.

Update: I called lsac. Was told to put the second college in as undergrad only, and they will see the graduate classes on the transcript.

Where do you see the issue? Each application I fill out allows for more than one Bachelor's Degree, and adding one is straight forward.
