Does your undergraduate school matter?

Postby Shotline » Fri Oct 08, 2010 12:16 am

When applying to schools, even the top tier, does your undergraduate school matter or is it just GPA and LSAT?

I know the degree doesn't matter but if I have a 4.0 from Berkeley, is that better than a 4.0 from someplace like Boise State?

Question has been asked a lot, so try to use the search function when you think something has been answered already. But anyway, the short answer is no. The long answer is no, unless it is maybe YHS.

OMG I can't believe how many times I have seen this question o_O -


answer: not really unless an online school or something (or maybe a SLIGHT boost for HYP)

In OP's defense, it is hard to use search function when it's always down.

You don't need advanced search to look for "does undergrad matter" in on-topic threads
