Upward GPA trend

Postby katie96 » Mon Jan 03, 2011 4:20 pm

Does an upward GPA trend hold significance for, let's say... T30 schools? I'm kind of bummed that my LSAT GPA will end up only being 3.4-3.5, but I've earned straight As for both semesters of my junior year, the following summer session, and both semesters of my senior year. Will that matter at all?

Probably not. Most candidates for LS have upward grade trends.

Up is better than down, but not a big separator. Might give a small boost if you went from 0.0 to 4.0 with an addendum, just for benefit of the doubt...?
