So far I've applied to well over a dozen schools and have received multiple admissions offers this cycle. However I received an email from LSAC yesterday afternoon, a full year since LSAC's had my transcript, stating that they were adjusting my LSAC GPA down to a 3.8, matching my transcript. When I called LSAC for an explanation, they stated that a law school noticed that my senior was not included in my academic summary report, and after factoring that year in my GPA was adjusted.
My GPA did slip senior year so the explanation itself makes sense, however I'm completely shocked and very angry that somehow LSAC failed to factor in my senior year of college into their records. I went to one umdergrad institution and there was nothing abnormal at all about my courses/grades senior year - so I have absolutely no idea how they could have made this error.
The fact that this could have happened and not been noticed for a year gives me serious concerns about LSAC's processes. How do you miscalculate a GPA using your own standardization methods and not have any controls to catch it?? Are they miscalculating other things???
I would be more understanding if this was adjusted a week or so after submitting the transcripts, but doing this after 1 full year, multiple applications, and multiple admissions, is ridiculous.
