Submitting Fall Transcripts

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I was hoping someone could offer some advice. I see that we must have all our fall grades submitted to OLSAS by Feb. 1st (which means we have to have submitted our transcripts a few days prior I’m assuming).

my concern is: my school has given all the professors an extension to hand grades back whereby they can take until the end of January to hand them back. This looks like a very real possibility for 3 of my 5 classes which means I may not be able to submit a full transcript for Feb 1st, does anyone have any advice? I don’t know what to do - I can’t exactly email the profs and tell them to hurry up lol.

I’d call OLSAS if you’re really concerned, but I’m pretty sure you just need to have requested your transcript by the 1st, and not necessarily have it in by then. At least, that was how it was for the Nov 1 application deadline. I’d check with OLSAS to be 100% sure but either way I’m sure they’ll understand.

Is it possible for you to email your professors and explain the situation? They might be able to make an exception for you and get yours out faster.

I don’t think so. They could technically give me my final grade but the way I understand it professors can’t update the official transcript until the deans approved the class. The dean has to accept the entire class’s grades to make sure the overall gpa/any bell curves aren’t to high or low. I haven’t heard of anyone being able to get their grades back before the rest of the class... but I guess it couldn’t hurt to ask if I’m still at a loss after I contact OLSAS.

Similar situation here, waiting for some grades back as well and not sure when to request the transcript. If all that's required is requesting it by Feb 1st then that would be a lot better.

    • On this site I regularly see people with LSAT scores 20-30 points lower than mine making ridiculous assertions about the amount of work that is supposedly required to get a top score. By contrast my personal experience was that the prep required to get a 99th percentile LSAT score consisted of learning basic logic game diagramming and writing a handful of practice tests. I see people with scores in the 150s knowing all the names of the different types of logical reasoning questions and discussing the logic behind them in terms I never learned and don't understand. All I know is if you put the test in front of me I intuitively understand what almost all of the answers are, but I couldn't do a good job of articulating why--the answers simply seem self-evident and to be taken for granted. Just chiming in because your statement squares with my experience (although I didn't reach 177). But by and large people with mediocre scores invariably claim that the LSAT is all about effort and just don't want to believe that innate aptitude has anything to do with it, because they tend to view it as an attack on their intelligence in general. (Just so I don't seem like a totally arrogant douche, everyone: for what it's worth I've put in serious effort trying to learn instruments and second languages and my innate aptitude in both of those areas is abysmal--I found such endeavors nearly impossible. Also the innate LSAT aptitude did not translate into innate law school aptitude, and I certainly would have preferred the latter. But yeah, the fact that I suck at other things but can effortlessly get an LSAT score in the 170s just emphasizes how much of it is innate. And the degree to which there are different kinds of intelligences that people have varying aptitudes for. The LSAT is irrelevant to me now in practical terms but I do find the subject interesting from a psychological perspective.)
    • The vast majority of people that score 170+ and post here put in a fraction of the effort the people grinding through the 150s and low 160s do. And I’m sure a ton of those grinders put in as much effort as is humanly possible into studying without having an innate grasp of the LSAT. But the people scoring 177-180 for example? Probably putting in some of the least effort into studying.
    • I'm really torn on this debate. LSAT prep companies and books argue that anyone can score over 170 but there's an obvious conflict of interest there, and some people claim that it's limited to someone's innate ability. Nature vs. nurture.
    • Now when you're on the bench you'll think harder before you set a precedent
