Anyone else have this issue?
I'm a little worried with how long all these is going to take. I sent my transcript request to my undergrad on Monday, so hopefully they will get those into LSAC sometime next week and I can then move on with getting my transcripts at my current school to LSAC. Ugh.
Oh yeah, still have to write that personal statement, too.
That's weird. I called LSAC, told them I couldn't add a new institution, and they told me to just have my law school send them a transcript with my LSAC number attached, and that I shouldn't worry about having the official form accompany the transcript like I did when applying to law schools.
As for me, everything was finished weeks ago. Just waiting for that app to become available.
Just called LSAC and double checked with a different person. They told me that you didn't need to add the current law school to the list of institutions and that you don't need the transcript request form.
I think my issue was that when I emailed them to add the institution, I got a response saying there was a "discrepancy" regarding my academic records because my undergraduate transcripts on file for my degree granting school don't reflect that a degree was conferred. My school, like I'm every other one I'm sure, required students to verify conferral of degree upon graduation and update with final transcripts. I sent these to my school directly, not through LSAC (why would I use LSAC for that, you know?). So essentially I guess they were saying they needed to make sure I graduated, which is obviously stupid because I'm IN law school. Did you guy update LSAC with this info, or is this guy who responded to my email just ... "misinformed"?
EDIT: To add to my aggravation, I called LSAC about 10 minutes ago (5 min before they close for today, just got home from class) and I got a message saying they were already closed. Yeah, I know, it's only 5 minutes, and it's not like they are a store you can walk into or something, but c'mon. If it says you are taking calls until 4:45, then take call until 4:45.
