another quick question.  how odes lsac adjust grades for studying abroad.  i studied abroad for almost 2 full semesters at my school.  but, my college doesn't calculate grades earned on off-campus study programs into my gpa.  i did quite well in all of these courses.  do you know if lsac will calculate them into my gpa?  i hope so!

If, through the program, you were in any way registered as a student in the universiety that you took these study abroad classes in, you are required for your law school apps to get those transcripts.  So I'd call the schools you worked at and see if they have those records.

the programs were offered through my college, but they weren't taught by a professor from my actual college so they don't calculate them into the mix (i think to guard against grade inflation, my college likes to think that they don't inflate grades).  so these will be counted as regular marks by lsac?
 thanks!

these grades should be counted into your lsdas gpa since they were classes you took while you were enrolled in school.  you should definitely request a transcript from them to be filed with lsac.
