Do I have to notify schools of one class?

Postby avacado111 » Sun Jan 10, 2010 4:36 pm

So, I graduated last year, and I was interested in taking a pottery class at a community college (just for fun)... the class is graded. Do I have to notify anyone of this (LSAC) or the school that I will be attending next year?

Yes. All college courses taken through an institution must be submitted to LSAC. If you will be accepted to a law school by the time the course is completed, you may just send it directly to your institution (not 100% if you still just send it to LSAC).

if you're just taking the class for fun and don't care about the credit, try and take it pass/fail or even better, sweet talk the professor into letting you audit or something

im pretty sure the only grades that pertain to your lsac gpa are the ones you took BEFORE you graduated college....so anything you take after that will not change ur gpa...and i dont see why they would care about it then....but it doesnt hurt to tell them

I thought it was any undergraduate coursework? That's how most of the applications phrase it. Could be wrong.

It's only classes from before graduation. Even if you wanted this class to count, it wouldn't.
