LSAC Conversions


ny21llm

Good afternoon,

I've read a lot of threads on here about degree conversions on LSAC. Thought it would be useful to have a thread where people who want to can post their grade and country it was earned in before conversion and what it was converted to by LSAC (average, above average)
Hopefully helpful for some of us waiting to hear back!

Do not apply on LSAC. From my experience, it is horrible. It is better to apply to law schools directly. After all, admission standard is decided by law schools instead of LSAC. LSAC is agency which makes money from applicants.

LSAC actually sends your transcript to AACRAO, a 3rd party provider for evaluation, and someone uses this service to complete the report. 

I was stressed because although my overall GPA is a B+ (73%), the degree pass is considered a distinction at my university. I thought that the report would grade me as above-average, but it seems they did consider my university's view and gave it a superior grade as well. Have a look at the website to understand more how they grade: https://www.aacrao.org/
