2 questions about LSAC grading calculation

Postby lawschoolbound1988 » Tue Feb 18, 2014 6:48 pm

1). When I graduate college, I will have taken 180 credit hours - due to changing my major my 3rd year and going 2 additional years longer. I read they calculate up until the degree is printed on the transcript, but is there a 120 or 130 credit hour cutoff?

2). I discovered this link http://www.lsac.org/transcriptkeys/igugs-search.aspx

Has anyone had any grade notation that on this link said was omitted by LSAC, and LSAC still counted it, regardless of what this said?

my understanding is that amount of credits does not matter until first bachelors degree

I have the same second question, and would love to know an answer. I have a grade in my transcript that falls under the omitted list that lsac provides in the interpretive guide. So did anybody else have a similar grade that fell under the omitted list and did Lsac count it or not? Thanks!

I had ~160 credits. LSAC used all credits to calculate my GPA. I wouldn't think that there is any difference for 180 credits.

I had roughly 180 credits, and they counted all of them
