Does UGPA Matter?

Lets say your LSDAS GPA is 3.5 and the UGPA is 3.8 will a law school even take notice?

Schools care about your LSDAS GPA, which makes sense because it is the most comprehensive summation of your academic performance up to your first bachelor's degree.

It's just i took an Intensive Ancient Greek Workshop at Berkeley for recreated and left the program halfway due to transportation issues. I forgot to withdraw and it brought down my GPA .3.. I wasnt planning on law school then so I didnt worry too much.I guess I can explain it... Damn. I almost wanna take another semester of classes just to balance even though I'm graduated haha

Unfortunately only classes taken prior to being awarded your first bachelor's degree count toward your LSDAS GPA, so your best option is to rock the LSAT.

Yea you got fucked pretty hard by that. Call up Berkeley and see if they can't change those F's into non punitive W's.
