Got the call tonight from Derek Meeker. He said that the letter will be sent in a week or two, and then a big packet of info around January. A very nice phone call indeed.

I'm going to the bar right now instead of studying for finals.

Also got into Temple today.

3.9ish/170ish (approximate numbers).

Politics and Law-Related News / NJ Governor Resigns AND Comes Out

Wow. Everyone thought that Gov. James McGreevey (D-NJ) was going to resign today due to a plethora of corruption charges. But it turns out he had an extramarital affair with another man. He said: "I am a gay American." Not sure if he mentioned corruption charges....

Law School Admissions / Yet Another Transcript Question
« on: July 29, 2004, 07:20:06 AM »
I know that there have been a million posts about transcripts so far... but I'm not sure how I fit in. I have already registered with LSDAS for the fall, and sent in my transcripts. When I registered, I didn't think that I needed to send in a community college transcript from high school. When I was a senior in high school, the local community college said that if you paid a nominal registration fee, you could then use your high school classes for community college credit (even though they were taught by my high school teachers). I didn't think that I needed to send in the transcript because I didn't transfer these credits to my four-year college, because I earned credit for some of the same classes through the AP test and the other class I would need to retake at my four-year college due to Honors Program requirements.

After reading some posts on this board, however, I think that I may have been mistaken and need to send in the community college transcript. I never received any grade report or transcript after my senior year in high school (which was three years ago). I got A's in the classes, and have the high school transcript to prove it. I'm not sure if the community college ever got the high school transcript, though, and may not have assigned a grade. I really have no idea.

My main question is: if I send LSAC the community college transcript (assuming that the community college has one), will they "punish" me in any way for not realizing that I had to put down that school when I registered for the LSDAS. Their instructions were really confusing, because it said you needed to send in transcript for "schools from which you took college-level courses while in high school even though they were for high school credit," but I previously interpreted this to mean that you actually took the classes at the community college, not at your high school from your high school teachers.

Any suggestions? I really don't want my LSAC file to get messed up, but didn't want any problems with this to ever arise later. Will they be mad at me, or simply process this transcript when they get it?  Has anybody ever been in a similar situation?
