The logic just does not exist for this rule. I am surprised there are so many deal with its for a degree that begins by logical testing :)



You're focusing on your missing "A's," which might have raised your gpa a tiny little bit. If I were you, I would worry more about the fact that you write like shit, as we lawayaz tends two writes a lots.

I also second the above. You will certainly enjoy every second of law school -- arguing inconsequential points till the cows come home... Your classmates on the other hand may try to shove your second degree up your ass before the end of your first semester.

I further second the above insofar as this is the furthest thing from what I would objectively describe as a "unique situation."

It surprises me how many people here feel as if the world revolves around them.

Hey fellas, I asked what was the reasoning behind this. I disagreed with it. There were other examples used, explaining how a rule is a rule, etc.

I am obviously upset my grade went down .13 because of reasons that could have been avoided had I just waited to graduated.

Round of girl friends or boy friends may be needed in here. :D

To be honest, I think arguing on TLS is what led to me doing so well on law exams. :D


Looks like I'm BACK IN DA GAME!

You've perfected the art. It's all going to be down hill after that one.

It does suck.

But, the good thing is that both transcripts will be sent to your schools -- and the second degree might be considered a soft factor.

It is a soft factor, just not one that is going to help.
