Question about transcript!
« on: October 15, 2008, 05:34:32 PM »
Hello! It is my first posting here.
I have a question.
I attended a foreign institution for two semesters and trasferred to the U.S. school.
Even though I took almost 40 credits in Korea, only 9 credit hours are acredited.
Should I include my Korean school or not?
I am confused! Please help me. Was anyone in a similar situation?
Thank you for your help!

LSDAS SAYS LIKE THIS
"You must have foreign transcripts, mark sheets, and degree certifications sent if:
you are applying to a law school that requires the JD Credential Assembly Service (JD CAS, an extension of LSDAS), AND
you received your undergraduate degree from a foreign institution, OR
you were directly enrolled at a foreign institution(s) and the total amount of work you completed at all foreign institutions combined is the equivalent of more than one year of undergraduate study in the US, its territories, or Canada."

Call LSAC, it only takes a minute. Don't trust an internet board for something this important.

True.  And if you want to be lazy, you can send your transcript in anyway, and if they don't want to process it they'll just put a note in your file saying you have attended a foreign institution.
awkward follows you like a beer chasing a shot of tequila.
