Rescinded ED acceptances

Postby redbullvodka » Wed May 16, 2012 9:24 pm

Was accepted into CCN ED with a 3.6ish gpa. Possibility that this will drop to a 3.57, as I may be getting a 3.0 this final semester. Letter never said anything about acceptance being contingent on maintaining the same level of academic success -- it seems like I just need to graduate. Anyone have any insight?

My school didn't even ask for last semester's transcript until I had already enrolled in my first set of law classes. You'll be fine.

Do you really think they'd rescind their offer after making you withdraw all other applications? :wink:

3.6-->3.57 does not constitute a drop in GPA.

I applied to a (then) T25 with a 3.38 GPA. I got a 2.25 8th semester (F,C,B+,A-). Dropped my cumGPA to 3.23. I sent in my transcript, and the only thing they cared about was the fact that I did, indeed, graduate. I don't necessarily recommend doing that, but didn't hurt me one bit.

CCN might be different for a drop like I had. But your drop doesn't seem precipitous. Can't imagine you'll have a problem.

this. Besides, they didn't take you for the gpa boost to their median anyway

To have your acceptance rescinded, you have to do something so reprehensible that the school is willing to hurt its revenue, median (assuming you're at or above the LSAT median), and yield to prevent you from attending. A moderate GPA hit is nowhere near that. I would guess that it has to be something like actually failing to graduate or discovering a lie on the application to have your acceptance rescinded.
