LSAC Mistake
« on: December 23, 2008, 03:55:27 PM »
I recently checked over my file at the LSAC and discovered an error in my transcript. When I sent my original transcript in August, the LSAC reported my GPA at a 3.58. I sent an updated transcript during the fall that reflected my adding a second major, though there was no actual new course work. However, the LSAC incorrectly reported my GPA as a 3.52. I just contacted the LSAC and they told me that they did in fact make an error and that my transcript will be updated by tomorrow. Should I send an email about it to my remaining schools? I'm kind of angry/freaking out about this.

I would email each school and tell them.

Couldn't hurt to just let the schools know it's coming, could it?

Yeah, I just emailed them.

.06 may not be much if you have a higher GPA, but mine is borderline for my top choice schools, so I want those points back.

Any law students thinking there's a tort here for unreasonably causing harm to Tom's applications? Causation would be the hardest thing to prove...
