But the other college will. You have to disclose all colleges attended.

It's also very easy to check so just do it.

^ This. School's are very interested in full disclosure. Even if they don't catch it, the bar will three years from now during your C&F review.

I think whether or not it affects your GPA depends on whether or not it was sponsored by your university.

I studied abroad last semester and was wondering the same thing. In terms of transcripts, LSAC says:

•Transcripts must be sent if your degree was received from an institution located outside the United States, its territories, or Canada, and you are applying to a Credential Assembly Service-requiring law school that also requires the authentication and evaluation feature.

Do not have a transcript sent from an international institution if your bachelor's degree is from a US, US territory, or Canadian school, AND:

◦the total amount of work you completed at all international institutions combined is equal to or less than the equivalent of one year of undergraduate study in the United States, its territories, or Canada, OR
◦your work was completed through an overseas study program that was clearly sponsored by a US, US territory, or Canadian school.

I hope this helps. If not, its always best to contact LSAC and speak to a representative that is more knowledgable
