Summer school

Postby dkdlrh » Mon Feb 20, 2012 4:05 pm

Hello, this is probably a really stupid question, but when I was in high school, I took a summer school class (during my junior summer) at a private college (possibly where I wanna go to for law school) and got a really bad grade. I didn't get credit or get the grade transferred to my current college, I just took the class for fun. Do I HAVE to report this grade on my application?


Thanks,

Yes. Otherwise you risk it coming up later and ruining your career.

I had one of these in middle school and the grade actually counted. Ridiculous, but true.

Yeah we can debate till we turn blue about how unfair it is, but them's the rules.
