Nothing Wrong with a little JC

Postby g73331 » Thu Dec 30, 2010 5:48 pm

No, it would not. It's all about your G.P.A. Thus, let's assume that the JC is a bit easier than USC or Wofford. So, get the best grades that you possibly can at your JC, and don't be in such a hurry to transfer in.

For law school apps, LSAC averages your GPA from all colleges attended--which of course includes your grades at your JC.

So, earn high grades at your JC, and this should set you up for a pretty good overall GPA which should ease your law school admissions process.

Lastly, I doubt if a LS would look down on the fact that you attended a JC. In fact, you can use this to your advantage in your admissions essay. For example, just say that you wanted to follow your dreams of playing sports, and the JC was your best option coming out of high school. Additionally, going to a JC before a university is unique--not everyone does that. Therefore, your application should stand out.

Some JCs grade harder than UGs. For example, mine.

Opps...rookie mistake. I meant to include this message as a response to a previous thread instead of posting as a new topic.

Forgive me people.

Haha the one I play baseball at is quite easy, besides the professors being lazy assholes.
