I am completing my master's degree this spring and subsequently starting my legal education this fall. I have already been admitted and placed a seat deposit. My graduate GPA changes every semester as I complete courses. Being paranoid, I always try to expedite updating LSAC CAS and my law school on changes.

In any event, I would like to take a few self-paced, credit correspondence courses for personal enrichment reasons. The courses I am looking at do not follow the academic year (they have a nine-month time limit with possible extensions). I intend to take them over summers, though they would overlap with my legal education insofar as self-paced courses can.

I have a few questions relating to correspondence courses:

  • Does the ABA impose limits (e.g. maximum number of credit hours) on taking courses from external institutions?
  • My understanding is that I have to write LSAC's CAS to get them to add a new institution to my account. Should I expect a review/audit when I report grades for correspondence courses?
  • Would undergraduate correspondence courses change my LSAC GPA?
  • Could any GPA changes (undergraduate or graduate, calculated or otherwise) jeopardize my admissions status in law school after I am already admitted? I don't expect to suddenly fail this semester or when I take individual courses, but I want to be fully informed.

Thanks,
PsycLaw
