Senior Year Grade Hit

Postby chem » Wed Apr 11, 2012 7:35 pm

I'm a little nervous. I don't think it matters too much, as I'm a splitter anyway. I've been accepted to Virginia, with a 3.4 and a 171. After senior year I took a grade hit and will drop to a 3.3, worst case a 3.27. Anyone hear of rescinded admission due to grades?

Don't worry about it, LSAC doesn't even get your transcript again unless you send it in. Once accepted your GPA doesn't affect you anymore.

Case in point, my final semester (combined with high school college courses) would have dropped my grades below the likely level for acceptance at my T6. I don't even remember if they got my final grades though.

Thanks! I saw it as a pretty slim chance, but after signing a lease and making plans, it would be terrible to have it taken away, so I needed to rest my neurosis the TLS way.

More importantly, you were already below their 25% GPA mark, at their 75% LSAT, and well above their 3.0 floor. So your drop doesn't effect their numbers in any way.
