No they won't.













Because all they care about is your cumulative GPA.

Do not worry about whatever else isnt cumulative. No one will notice or care.

winter.is.coming wrote:So LSAC doesn't distinguish (i.e. separate codes) between the honors college at my university and the rest of the student body (although it is essentially a separate institution). Consequently, my gpa college mean on the academic summary report seems extremely high- given that my university as a whole isn't reputable in the slightest, whereas the honors college is ranked extremely well. The gpa college mean for the honors division is undoubtedly lower. My question is, will the admissions department take this into account? My status in the honors college will be reflected in my resume obviously, but does anyone know if there's anything else that I ought to do to clarify this in my application?


Sometimes honors students give themselves way too much credit. This post exemplifies that behavior.

Oh c'mon, you could've been a lot worse, and this is a useful topic for future people wondering the same thing. Anyway you're quoted below so it's not like you really erased anything.
