College courses taken at high school
« on: June 29, 2005, 08:21:23 PM »
Should I send transcript from University of Albany to LSAD which gave me credit for classes taken at a high school and not at the college itself? Do you think they'll give me credit since I got A's for 2 classes taken.

I am in a similar situation as you.  I took two college classes during high school through a local university.  My undergrad did transfer the credits but not the grade. 

I am not sure if that is the case for you but if it is def. send the transcript.  I talked to a LSAC rep at a law forum last year and that is what I was advised to do because the credits did transfer to my degree-granting institution.

You do have to send in the transcript. Looking at the experience of others on the board, you should get credit for those classes for your LSAC GPA.

The credits wont transfer to my undergrad though because they wont take classes taken at a HS. Does it still count though?

I don't think it matters. LSAC requires transcripts of any classes taken at a college/university. I have heard of people here taking a hit in their LSAC GPA's b/c of such HS classes.
