Does undergrad record matter?

Postby tdkk » Tue Jun 07, 2011 9:27 am

An example: my LSAC grade point average is 3.50, which I understand is on the low side for T14 schools. However, I have two difficult majors (math and physics) in which I chose difficult curricula (graduate courses and similar) at a very good school. Will law schools seriously take this into account, or is the number all that matters?

If I were you, I would assume that know one will be able to tell or will care how difficult your majors or coursework is. Its pretty much a numbers game.

LSAT score?

If you have a 170+, you have a good shot at the T14.

3.5, with the requisite LSAT, can get you into most of the t14 outside of HYS.
