Is my GPA high enough for Penn ED?

Postby tallfrodo » Mon Jun 27, 2011 5:40 pm

I'm a rising senior at a T20 LAC.
This summer I'm interning under an in-house counsel at a major company and I was wondering if I should end my internship early to do summer session one.
I currently have a 3.3 GPA, and a 172 LSAT.
If I take summer session courses I can raise my GPA to a whopping 3.35 lol :P
Is it worth it?
I know .05 seems like a negligible difference but my GPA is low so I'm stressing about every 0.1 difference haha.

Also is my GPA/LSAT a match for Penn ED? I looked at LSN and it seems like with people with similar scores usually get waitlisted unless they ED, and a surprising number of people seem to get in.

Your poll is labeled incorrectly. Yes you are high enough with your current GPA. If you really want to see how Penn ED applicants fare, check out http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com
