Check your math. If you had a 3.93 after 7 semesters, you'd need a ~2.1 your final semester to end up with a 3.7:
(3.93 * 7 + 2.1) / 8 = 3.70

The solution is to send your final transcript directly to the law school, not to LSAC.

At this point there's nothing you can do. Your final GPA will be your final GPA, and you're going to have to send your final transcript regardless. Maybe the school will rescind and maybe they won't--no one here is going to have any idea.

+1.

Unless the LS that accepted you specifically requests another transcript now, they will only want to see the final transcript that shows you've graduated. Have you formally accepted and sent in your deposit? If yes, do nothing until after you graduate.
