You'll have to check regulations on leaving out a masters or not. But many people have smicha without a masters degree for it. Not very hard to explain.
LSAC regulation or the school regulations...where am I looking?

I had a gap when I was in Israel. Just wrote that I was at an unaccredited program.

it would probably be beneficial to show a master's degree certificate. However, can he leave out his GPA?

I think you need to look at the application for each school, and see what they want you to send, and send it.

Exactly my question.

Should current school send transcript with masters to LSAC?

Anyone have a clue, if the individual schools receives the actual transcript from LSAC, or just the GPA? I'm wondering if they will see if a number of the grades have been appealed? Additionally, how odd/negative would that be?

That's a question for LSAC.  If they require you to send them your masters transcript.

LSAC lists among Grades Excluded from Conversion
"Those awarded after the first undergraduate degree was received."

@henche The 1st paragraph on same page says " In all cases, a copy of each transcript is sent to law schools along with LSACís Law School Report."

That's a question for LSAC.  If they require you to send them your masters transcript.
LSAC FAQ page
I have been enrolled in a graduate program. Do I send a transcript to LSAC? How is this record reported on the law school report?
Yes. Send graduate transcripts to LSAC. Although LSAC does not summarize graduate or professional school work, it does list these transcripts on the law school report and send copies of them to law schools.

Not crystal clear but seems like I do need to send...?

Anyone know if schools usually post a grade appeal on transcript?

Law schools? Which school would actually change your grade as a result of an "appeal"?

Not changed in law school. Question is regarding grade appealed in Yeshiva.

Any one skilled in the art of scholarship negotiation want to weigh in? Chicago offered me 25k/year and would love to get Columbia to at least match. Should I preemptively send in my offer now or wait for them get back to me first as well as hear back from the rest of the schools I applied to?

I'd do it now.  Can always go back later.
