Do Law schools count GPA from all colleges?

Postby CanIGetAnAmen » Wed Oct 03, 2012 2:37 am

I'm in a community college right now but I'm going to transfer after this semester.
Do law schools count GPAs from all colleges?
The reason I'm asking is because I saw a thread on here in which someone said that LSAC didn't combine their community college GPA because of some issue with the school.
So do law schools count community college GPAs or are there certain instances where they are not counted?

The rule is that everything is counted until you get a bachelor's degree. Some tiny exceptions to the rule, but in general everything is counted until you get a diploma.

Don't have all the details, maybe LSAC screwed up or they counted his grades but the poster is an idiot. LSAC has all their policies on their website.
