Will LSAC mistake this as degree date

Postby julieisawesome » Sat Jan 23, 2016 8:44 pm

I am still in undergrad (have been for a long time) with a 3.2 absolute gpa and 179 LSAT. I wont graduate until a year from now, however, when I was riffling through my unofficial transcript, I noticed for this past Fall 15 semester, it was posted on it: "Transfer module completed on 12/20/15". I tried to see what that meant, and it looks like it just means that I completed all the courses necessarily if a transfer was to take place. I have not graduated, nor is their a degree date.

When I go to submit my transcript, since LSAC calculates up to degree date, could the notation "Transfer module completed" be misinterpreted as where they will stop calculating? Or should I be okay and they will calculate to the degree date?

Transcripts are usually explicitly clear when a degree has been awarded, so when LSAC sees "Transfer module completed", they're either going to know that it's not the awarding of a degree, or they'll ask.
