Resume question

Postby ricking1288 » Tue Mar 30, 2010 2:02 pm

I'm not applying until next semester but I'm getting everything ready as early as possible so I can get out my apps the first day it comes out. Im very excited about the next cycle. I had a question about my law school resume. Should I put my Ugpa or my LSAC gpa or both? Thanks.

I did not include my LSAC GPA. They have that in their report that LSAC provides them with. I did not tailor my resume much for the app process. I used the one I apply to jobs with (which does not include my LSAC GPA.)

Yeah, I agree. Use your traditional GPA. Also, if your major GPA is higher, include this also. However, the law school admission officers already have your academic transcripts with an extensive account of your grades, classes, etc...
Therefore, your resume is there to guide adm comm on your work experience, and how well-put together you can look on paper.
