W's question
« on: March 02, 2014, 06:12:52 PM »
I will have a 3.5+ when I graduate, however I have old junior college transcripts that have 8 W's on them, so I plan to get killed when LSAC does their conversion. My question is, I went to the link below to see if these W's were punitive. I entered both junior colleges, San Diego City College and West Los Angeles College. W's were listed as "omitted", however the W's were not in the "non-punitive" section. What do you think the difference is? If they are omitted does this mean LSAC will not count them, or am I still screwed?

I did call both colleges and both told me I had to contact LSAC to see if the W's would be punitive or not. Still waiting for a response from them and figured while I waited I would get your thoughts.

To be honest, I don't know the answer to this question. But regardless of the answer, there isn't much you can do about it. If you can't do anything about it, there's no need to waste time worry about it. Just continue getting amazing grades, absolutely kill the LSAT, and invest the appropriate time into your essays. Let the law schools figure out the rest.

Good luck (and sorry for such a non-answer)! :)
