Early Graduation or Better GPA?

Postby Badgejack » Tue Feb 28, 2012 12:10 pm

Does a so/so GPA have a chance if you graduated early?

Early graduation has little to no effect on admissions chances. LSAT + GPA is 95% of admissions.

1) Are you above median GPA for your target schools? Your targets should be HYS unless you are 100% sure you can't break 173, or your GPA is already too low.
2) If you are above median, then graduate early if it will save you $$. If not, work to raise GPA.

I graduated early and I feel it has no impact on law schools view me.
