LSAC and LSDAS / Huge GPA Issue; Advice?
« on: August 08, 2010, 12:47:10 PM »
With regard to GPA problems, I had worst possible phone call about 2 days ago.  In fact, it was collections.  I was confused at first, but then red flags went up.  Why would I owe money to a school I never attended?

The issue is as follows:  Before I recieved my acceptance from Georgia Tech for UG, I had signed up for classes at a previuos college.  However, I later decieded to go to Georgia Tech.  I would have bet my life on the fact that I dropped these classes.  Well, you guessed it.  I guess I had not.

When I called the university, they said I had recieved an F in all 5 classes.  I am currently contacting these professors to see if they would give me a "W", but in the meantime is there anything I can do with LSAC?  :'(


LSAC and LSDAS / Can you circumvent the LSDAS GPA?

Hypothetically of course  :D:

So based on what I have read about the GPA calculation, the LSDAS GPA is based on all of the courses that apply toward your degree.  Now, I am assuming that the body awarding one's degree is the one who decides what courses apply toward your degree.  This is fine.

However, what if you are a transfer student?  Say you transferred in 30+ hours to your graduating institution.  For every transferred class that you have received an unsatisfactory grade, can you systematically retake these courses at your graduating institution to obtain a higher grade, and thus eliminate a course from transferring in?  So now you would be transferring a 3.08 gpa at 27 hours, or a 3.2 gpa at 23hours and so forth?

I hope I explained this clearly.  Thoughts?

As you can tell, I am brand new to this forum.  Can someone relate to my situation?:

I am scoring around 150  :-[ by taking a few practice LSATs.  This is just a benchmark, as I have not begun preparing for the exam.  Has anyone had a similar LSAT before they started studying?  If so, what was your final LSAT??  How much time did you spend studying?

Thanks for your time!
