How does LSAC evaluate foreign transcript? Killing me...

Postby crazyvix » Mon Nov 11, 2013 10:07 am

I don't have an American undergrad degree, which means I will not get a GPA. my undergrad transcripts says 88.2/100, rank 2nd out of 303.. but I heard that LSAC would only give Superior to those who score 90+.. I really need a Superior to get into HLS, is there a possibility LSAC would give me a Superior..? Thanks in advance!

If you are in premium foreign institutions like Oxbridge, Tokyo, Tsinghua/Beijing, an 85 would get you an S, other schools does require an 90 to guarantee a Superior, but a class rank of 2/303 is really impressive and you can definitely leverage that to argue for an S if LSAC only initially awards AA to your transcript. I know some people who have gotten the boost after complaining that their assessment was too low based on their class ranks.
