Admissions difference between 3.89 and a 3.9?

Postby MSachmorov » Tue Apr 06, 2010 11:01 am

Hello,
I have calculated my lsac gpa using the law school predictor lsac gpa calculator (does anyone know how accurate it is?) and it told me my lsac gpa would be a 3.89. After playing around on it a bit it seems that if I took a few more classes I could have a 3.9. I was wondering how big of a difference this would make at a t14 school? Normally I would fiqure such a small difference wouldn't matter but since it is a difference of of getting to the next number I thought it would make a difference.

I appreciate any thoughts/comments/advice. Thanks in advance!

Insignificant. Either is around median at HYS and above 75th everywhere else but Berkeley.

The difference between an admit and reject at Harvard. Seriously.

I am actually at 3.88 right now. I will have a 3.92 by end of semester. Think my chances will improve quite a bit next cycle?

Hey,

this thread isn't a "flame" and I didn't intend for it to sound that way. I am looking for legitimate answers since this has been bothering me.

Where you guys serious about it being that big of a deal? Like an auto-admit over a wait-list or an acceptance over a rejection?
I appreciate the responses, but it would be better if I could tell which were jokes and which were serious. Thanks for the answers!
