I've often found the best way to begin any new endeavor is on a bed of lies and deceit.

Can we find some way to just have this response automatically pop up when someone asks a question about how to try and manipulate their LSDAS GPA?

It seems like OP is trying to pad his GPA so obviously he is going to tell LSAC. And its a fradulent action? Really?

Ah I misunderstood and thought he had bad grades he was trying to hide.

If he's getting good grades to boost, then yeah, as long as his university doesn't have a policy that puts him in a position of perjury (eg he signed a document saying he had no other transcripts), he should be fine.

Why wouldn't you tell your "home university"?

Yes it still counts. . . . the LSDAS GPA recalculation is egregious at best.

I actually want to take an online class in the fall and want the law schools to see it, however, i wasnt sure if i could just take it on the side or if i had to go through my university for it to count, basically i was just seeing if i could be lazy or if i had to get in touch with my university not deceit or lies haha
