Is there anything that is really important for splitters (low GPA/high LSAT) to touch on in their letters of recommendation? I could see it being helpful to steer a letter away from things like academic prowess and more towards diversity, etc. (as an implicit explanation for a lower GPA) but I guess I'm not sure...
Or should the letter go the other way? Talk about pure academic potential, make the admissions council think that the lower GPA was due to harder classes, or perhaps immaturity, or some other factor? Maybe they might overlook a lower GPA in the past if the trend has been upwards (like, 2.5gpa in community college, 3.0 gpa once transferred to a UC, 3.5 gpa in grad school).
Is there anything else a splitter should know when asking for letters? Any advice appreciated.
