How can I get into Vanderbilt?

Postby o2bnlv » Mon Nov 29, 2010 10:53 pm

170/2.9

How can I make this happen? My school offers a lot of online classes and they're only $300 each. Could I just load up a bunch of BS online courses to raise my GPA to the 3.2 range?

If you haven't graduated yet.

So if I have like 160 hours, LSAC will still count them?

Honestly, I'm not sure how much raising your gpa will help unless you raise it .5 of a point. Vanderbilt has extraordinary high medians and I'm not sure taking a 2.9 to a 3.2 will truly help (although I could be wrong).

If you haven't already gotten an undergraduate degree, yes.

But with a 170, I think you should ED to a lower T14 instead.

Vanderbilt is NOT splitter friendly. Get a GPA above 3.0; ED to UVA.
