Quick Question on GPA...

Postby olivi7 » Mon Nov 08, 2010 2:03 am

Can I improve on my GPA by taking additional undergrad courses?
I graduated in 1996 with a BBA from Georgia State University.
So my GPA is what it is.
Can I take undergrad or grad classes at GSU in an attempt to raise my GPA.
(I am wanting to go to GSU LAW, eventually)
Thanks

no. Once you have recieved your degree your lsac gpa stays sealed. In other words you can not take more classes in hopes of raising your gpa once you have your degree.

TITCR Your LSAC GPA is what it is.

Take the time you were planning to invest in those courses at GSU and put it into LSAT prep.

Good luck OP.

Your GPA is set since you've graduated. GSU's medians are 3.41 / 159, so if your GPA is below the median you'll need at least a 159+ LSAT to have a shot.

As for law school admissions, you are stuck with your undergraduate GPA FOREVER once you graduate...whether it was a good one or a bad one.
