Also- even if you do send in your study abroad transcript, they don't factor your GPA in.  No way at all...I tried  ;)

Wait, my study abroad grades were totally included in my overall GPA... It's been a couple of years, but they definitely were, in my case.

Yeah, I think they changed the rule a year or two ago saying that if you studied abroad for less than a year they wouldn't factor it into your GPA.

Hey, same boat. Even though they don't factor them into your LSDAS GPA I called LSAC and they said that if you have the original transcript sent they'll forward it to all of your schools with your report so schools will at least  see the grades and the improvement even though it won't be able to help their over all numbers

After clarifying this with LSAC, here it is for the record: study abroad grades aren't included, but a copy is for the admissions committee to refer to.
