Mailed in my transcript

Okay, I have a logistics question:

Most people apply in Fall of their 4th year, can hear back by Xmas, and thus never send in their final Spring grades, correct?

I am currently completing my BA in the next month with some final language credits that will probably destroy me. So I went ahead and had my transcripts mailed to the LSAC with those classes as "in progress". I plan to apply to schools ASAP, and I think Loyola is the earliest around Sept 15th (where else can I find the first days they accept them?). Will schools ask for an updated transcript even though the one I mailed is only 1 month old, and only 2-3 classes out of 40+ had not been graded yet?

I will be gone from Aug 11-Sept 2nd anyway which is another reason why I took care of it now.
Thanks for your help, curious how this will work out.

If you're waitlisted or "held", one of the things schools might ask for is an updated transcript. Otherwise, you submit a final transcript after you pick a school.

So either way they will see the grades, but *maybe* after they make a decision?
Can't change it anyway, doing the best I can, just thinking ahead...
