Include Fall Quarter Grades?

Postby Luthecis » Tue May 10, 2011 1:57 pm

First post! Salutations, fellow TLS users :)

I'm a junior that will be applying to law schools fairly soon. I was just wondering about the tradeoffs between filing late and including better grades in the fall quarter.

As you know, fall quarter grades are released sometime in mid-December. If the grades that I obtain during fall quarter will help boost my GPA by an amount of 0.05, should I wait until December to turn in my law school applications, or just turn them in early because spaces will run out fast by the time December comes?

Any sort of suggestions is welcomed. Thanks!

Apply as soon as you're ready, and then update with your fall quarter grades when you get them.
