Dec grads - send an updated transcript?
« on: December 29, 2006, 09:18:04 PM »
Just wondering what other December grads are doing. Should we send an updated transcript ASAP to LSAC?

My GPA didn't change (so there's no good/bad issue there).

I went ahead and sent an updated transcript to LSAC. I wasn't sure if the schools would want it or not, but I figured I got a 4.0 my last semester so it couldn't hurt me. I also didn't want to risk holding up my file longer if any of the law schools requested an updated transcript. I'd say you might as well send it- it will only cost you a few bucks (10 for me).

As did I, but mine helped me so I was more than eager.  If it doesn't hurt you, I'd say send it in quickly.  At least that way it doesn't look like you're trying to hide anything.

Has anyone's December transcript been processed by LSAC yet (I sent mine out on the 22nd)?  I know they are running a little behind, but wasn't sure how much.

Not yet...I was hoping it would be before they sent my materials out to my final school.  Ah well.

Yea, same here.  My GPA went up .06 which makes a substantial difference for some of my reach schools.  Hopefully they process my updated transcript and get it sent out before I get dropped into the "auto ding" pile.
