how LSAC would calculate these W grades

Postby tiffanyrussell10 » Sat Feb 16, 2013 6:39 pm

Alright, I have around 30 Withdrawals due to medical reasons in undergrad. Basically my question is, how can you tell if LSAC will count your withdrawals as punitives?

On the transcript where it explains grades issued at my school is says W grades not computed, and none of my withdrawals were factored in my gpa. I looked at this below transcript key that LSAC uses and it says W grades omitted....see below, if you were to type in my undergrad school (kent state university) it would show W's omitted ... earch.aspx

1. Is this above website that surfaces on this forum accurate?

2. Has anyone looked at this regarding your W's being omitted and LSAC still counted them?

W's didn't count towards my lsac Gpa. But law schools will have a copy of the transcript and see the W's. So id definitely address them

W's don't count toward your LSAC GPA. That being said, if you have 30 of them schools will see them on your transcript, an addendum may be in order.
