Consequences of Senioritis?

Postby traehekat » Tue Apr 27, 2010 3:16 pm

Just curious...

...while I have never heard of anyone being accepted into a law school and then having the offer rescinded upon seeing grades for the last semester, I'm wondering exactly how bad someone would have to do for it to happen, as I know it COULD happen. My belief is that the consensus is law schools really only care if you graduate.

I ask because (you guessed it) I am slacking pretty hardcore this semester. Looking at probably a couple Cs, some Bs, and maybe one A. My GPA is currently 3.59, to put my projected performance into perspective.

Yeah, I guess this may be more of a concern, although I don't think employers will really care too much about undergraduate grades.

pretty sure they will not care abt anything but your LS GPA. once I have an LS GPA b/c IMO my good undergrad GPA is irrelevant and gone.
