Early in the fall of the application cycle, you will need to request an official transcript from each college or university from which you have earned academic credit.  You will need to enter the names of the institutions in the Credential Assembly Service area of the LSAC web site.  Official transcripts should be sent to the Credential Assembly Service for analysis; therefore, do not send transcripts directly to law schools.  After analysis and approval, your transcripts will be included in your CAS file.

LSAC will convert the GPAs from each of your undergraduate institutions into a standard 4.0 system, which is then submitted to the law schools to which you are applying as part of your Master Law School Report.  There may some variation between the LSAC calculated GPA and the GPA on your undergraduate transcripts, however it is usually slight and is not likely to impact a law school’s admission decision.
