However I received a D in a course my freshmen year, I retook it last year and got an A. It is on my transcript, but it's not listed as having any credit awarded. Am I right that this will count towards my LSAC GPA?
Also, I have taken 12 hours at community college. These were taken in the summer between school years. The reason I took them at CC is because they transfer to my university as P/F, this is the state policy. So even though they went to my university as P/F, do they still count to my LSAC GPA? They are listed on my university transcript as 12 credit hours passed... This is pretty troubling to me because of these 12 hours, 6 are A, 3 B, and 1 as a C.
I'm sort of freaking out here because if all these grades, that I didn't think counted to my GPA, are applied to my LSAC GPA I will only have a 3.6. Even if I earn another 4.0 next semester my GPA will still be quite unimpressive.
The 'D' at your undergrad institution will count.
Given that you need to submit your CC transcript to the LSAC (and provided the CC recorded the grades on the CC transcript), those grades will also count towards your LSDAS GPA.
Thanks, that's what I thought. A little disappointing, but I can still get my GPA up to a 3.7 by the time I apply. So thats pretty good. I 'm guessing I should write an addendum when the time comes?
A brief (one-paragraph) addendum would be helpful, highlight that the D was from freshman year (and hopefully the CC courses were from earlier summers as well).
Thanks, that's exactly what I will do when it comes time to apply. Yes, all CC courses are from earlier semesters. Just curious, how do Law Schools look at GPA addendum's similar to mine? By application time I should have a 3.7 (LSAC) but my University GPA will be almost a 3.9.
