Does a GED play a factor in law school admision?

This DOES NOT apply to me! A friend and I where recently discussing law school and he mentioned that he would'nt be able to get in anywhere because he has a GED. I would think your college GPA would be what counts, has anyone known anyone that had a problem getting into law school because of a GED?

I got my GED. I addressed it in my PS, actually. Im proud of it! My cycle went really well. I was admitted to several T1s and T2s across the country, and am attending a T30 with $$. A GED will not keep your friend out of law school. It can actually be spun into a nice soft.

Thanks! I really didnt think it would matter much, just thought I would find someone on here like you who knew more about it than me.
