Post BA/Continuing Education Grades Factored into GPA?

Postby jwinaz » Sun Dec 02, 2012 6:13 pm

Currently a working post-UG grad here.

I thought I'd ask for a quick and experienced response from folks here know if courses taken after graduation from undergrad in the form of post-bac or continuing education work would count for and/or against the GPA for law school admissions.

I've taken a total of four courses (three that were part of post-bac work in statistics and one that was a night course for personal enjoyment in creative writing) since graduating from undergraduate and may actually have a desire to take a few more (non-degree courses).

I happened to maintain a 4.0 in these four courses, so I wasn't worried about potential low grades affecting my GPA, but just curious if they could actgually help at all? And, conversely, I'm wondering if they could hurt? I had thought of taking two more night classes this coming Spring at a local university here (one for work related skills and the other for pure enjoyment in writing again). We have the option of taking an audit grade or P/NP, so that was why I asked.
