Exchange Grades to LSAC

Postby FlyHigh » Sun Aug 21, 2011 2:37 am

My exchange credits show up on my UG transcript, without grades. These are transfer credits that I received while studying abroad on academic exchange for 1 semester (four months).

I am applying to HYS - do I need to request the original transcript from this one semester and send it in?

Before you apply to HYS, what is your GPA/LSAT?

After reading through LSAC's website twice: as long as it was under 1 year you don't submit the transcript.

Also:
School: Major University in Canada
Program: Political Science

Rank: 1/400 - Also writing an honors thesis
GPA: 4.1/4.3

(what would LSDAS convert this to by the way?)

LSAT: Haven't taken yet, but extrapolating from practice scores, probably a 173 - 177

I think it will be closer to the mid 170s as I am seriously considering NOT writing in October, and just writing in December.

Summer work experience:
- Internship at an investment bank, brokerage firm, and at a Federal Government Ministry, as well as an RA for a law prof at the University of Toronto.

ECs: Debate, Model Parliament, Campus Journalism (3-4 year leadership positions in each organization)

Academic Exchange to Paris

Thoughts on Chances for: H, Y, S, Columbia

Depends on LSAT score. You need to shoot for a 173+ for all three schools, although a 171-172 might barely get you into Harvard. For Yale and Stanford, you really need that 173+, just for a good shot at getting in. Also, I would recommend taking the year off, doing more work, and applying early (as in beginning of September), so you can max out your chances of admission.

Good luck.
