Error in application!!

Post by Houston345 » Mon Feb 03, 2014 11:35 pm

I already submitted my applications but I realized I forgot to include a school I took a summer course at almost four years ago. I already contacted LSAC and requested the transcript. Should I email notify each school I applied to since they ask for all of the educational institutions attended on the application? If so, how can I correct this mistake?

Do you think this could affect my chances?

Is the summer grade really shitty or something?

No the grade is decent, it was a general chemistry class. I just completely forgot about the class. Bad mistake on my part, I'm just hoping the committee doesn't rescind any of my current offers because of this mistake.

I doubt it they would.

You should definitely update each school, but yeah, it seems unlikely that they'd hold this against you.

It depends. Did your undergraduate institution (I'm assuming you took this summer course before you received your bachelor's degree) include this summer course on its transcript? If so, then I wouldn't worry about it. If not, then for the sake of completeness and honesty, you should update your applications.

They won't care. Just send in an addendum explaining what happened. It will have 0 impact, unless you got a terrible grade.
