Nothing you can do now other than get a good LSAT score. Approach the LSAT with the same work ethic you used to get good grades, and use the LSAT forum for help.

Probably worth noting that withdrawing from classes shouldn't hurt you unless you withdrew failing.

They won't screw you over. No one cares about your intellectual prowess as a high schooler. Get a good LSAT

What I meant was i got the B's in high school from those calculus classes that transferred in. Wasn't trying to state my intellectual prowess as a high schooler.

3 Bs are not that big a deal in the grand scheme of an UGPA (there are people with much bigger deficits to deal with).

If I retake those classes can I get the old grades erased? also is there a way to get my LSDAS gpa calculated officially?

No, retaking will just count both grades. And you can send in your transcripts and get LSAC to calculate everything (I think there might be an online tool to let you estimate but I'm not sure).

Those Bs will count even if you retake them, and the F you received in the P/F class will count as a zero.

What about withdrawals? They arent considered punitive in my university. I dropped 2 classes before I even had a grade simply because I was enrolled in too many credit hours

Yeah on my transcript it doesn't say N which is what you get for not passing. It just says W.

Sorry and one last thing. My school doesn't offer A+'s so does that mean I am simply at a disadvantage to other schools that do offer A+'s ?

Wouldn't necessarily say you're at a disadvantage. But rather, those who receive A+ have an advantage.

OP just retake the LSAT. You're looking for excuses rather than solutions.

If the Ws are not considered to be punitive at your school, they will not count as zeros. You are not at a disadvantage because your school does not award A+s. (Rather, if you go to a school that awards A+s, then you are at a very slight advantage.)

You need to stop looking for reasons to worry; you cannot change any of the things you just mentioned.

Yes, I got mine sent off already. It should show up as part of the academic report they are going to send off to law schools. Mine was pretty simple so my actual GPA was spot on to the LSDAS GPA. You don't want to wait because people report having problems the longer they wait. I sent mine in by mail, and it got processed within 5 days, and that's pretty quick. Hope this helped!

So when I request my official transcript from the University of Nebraska which I am currently attending, it just says "12 Credits Wesleyan University" which is a university I did classes with in high school. When I submit my transcript to CAS do I just need to submit my University of Nebraska transcript? Or do I also have to call Wesleyan and send one from there too?

You have to submit both.
