Would LSAC consider this failure on a transcript?

Postby barberiolisa » Thu Jan 03, 2013 7:20 pm

My last semester of undergrad, I was hospitalized, and withdrew from the 2 other courses I was enrolled in and I received a failing grade in the third class, I appealed the grade and a W was placed on my transcript so for that semester I have 3 W grades. W grades are non-punitive at my school, however, "Semester Warning" is still written under the transcript that semester, even though I have 3 non-punitive W's. Will LSAC, read the Semester Warning and decide to count everything has F's or am I reading too much into it? Please try to help me here.

If it's non punitive it's not punitive. That said LSAC isn't consistent in how they apply it. If they apply it right, it won't be Fs.

They won't count against your LSDAS GPA. However, you'll want to figure out now how you need to respond to the C&F questions.
