Transcript issue


n24ow
Hello all,

I did an exchange program for one semester abroad, but no credit was transferred to my original uni and no degree was received. In addition, the courses were not all law related. Do I also need to send my exchange transcript to LSAC? It is a bit difficult to ask for original copy to be sent from my exchange uni since I live in my country...

thank you!

I had the same issue, but when I went to my own law school (in person) it turned out they had my normal transcript and the one from the semester abroad both on file, and they typically send both to LSAC in the same envelope. So I didn’t have to contact the exchange university at all

Thanks for your reply!
I have already sent my uni transcript without my exchange program transcript....and the deadline has already passed. Do you think that would be a problem? Would they consider my application without it? I am so worried

Thank youuu!

Hello! Were your transcripts processed and reports generated nonetheless? Because I did the same, but then received an email from LSAC over the Christmas holidays refusing to process that exchange transcript and prompting me to contact my exchange institution...

Did you send it yourself, or did your university's law school send it? If your uni has sent your transcript, I'm sure LSAC will read only what is in the envelope and won't go digging for the semester abroad results, since no degree was conferred.
You could always ring LSAC if you're unsure, good luck!

Hi! I'm actually not sure, as I only sent my transcripts off on the week of December 17th (quite late)...
I rang LSAC on Jan 10 and they told me that they were processing transcripts received in early December at that stage.
So I don't know yet whether they've even received mine, let alone if there is a problem with the year abroad transcript, and probably won't know for a few weeks
Did you have to contact your exchange university in the end? That seems unfair

Yes, I had to! LSAC's email was very clear about this...

"Hello (my name),

We have received your academic record from (Home institution). We saw that there was exchange work at (Exchange institution) and added it to your account. Please make sure this entry is correct. Also, we need the transcript from the (Exchange institution). Our policy is that all transcripts/academic records must be mailed directly to LSAC from the issuing institution in a sealed school envelope with the school’s official stamp or seal across the back flap. You will need to contact the (Exchange institution) and request they send your academic record to us in this manner."

I was very lucky that the registrar at my exchange institution understood how desperate I was, and accepted to send the transcript free of charge via DHL. So I know that LSAC received it, but I don't know when it will be processed though!!

Thanks for the reply! I've just received the same message from LSAC :(
Did you inform the universities you were applying to about the delay in processing your transcript?? My universities are already issuing offers so I wonder if I should let them know there's something delaying my full transcript being processed....
