URM with GPA question

Postby Barack O'Drama » Mon Mar 09, 2015 3:52 pm

Hey all, long time lurker here. I am an AA URM and just had a question that I could not find a definite answer to on TLS forums.

Basically I was wondering if I transferred during college with a 4.0 GPA and graduate with a 3.92 will they be averaged together for my final GPA that law schools will see? Or will they only see what I graduate with from the school I go to now?

Thank you!

It is my understanding that they will both be factored into your overall LSAC GPA and will be weighted according to how many credits/classes contributed to them.

Yes, any and all classes taken will go toward your LSAC GPA with few exceptions (withdrawals, etc). If you have any questions, call LSAC and a rep will walk you through it.

Thank you, I will begin studying for the LSAT as soon as the semester if over for next cycle. Hopefully with a 165+ and my 3.92 I may be able to get into my dream school of Harvard.
