Straight A student accepted to law school. Senior year

Postby itachiuchiha » Wed Mar 13, 2013 10:53 pm

What would occur in the situation where a straight A (from freshmen to junior year) student got into a good law school and then they stopped trying senior year and got a few B's? Can law schools revoke acceptances due to this upon looking at final transcripts?

I tried to look for this question in the search, couldn't find it.

if that is indeed the case, then it is beneficial to save the toughest classes required in your major for senior year. This way, law schools won't really care about the grades in the class if you happen to screw it up.

Sure, but if you're planning to slack in the same year you're taking your hardest classes be careful.

Do law schools have to report your final transcript GPA (or can they report the score they received when they admitted you)?

Nobody will revoke, but why fuck up a perfect record. Keep your work ethic, you'll need it.

I was about to post to say this raises a few red flags, but then I read your username. You don't have a 4.0 or straight A's, so why bother asking this stupid question?

Every thread you make is either pointless or has a simple, obvious answer, and while there was possibly an excuse for the first 20 or so threads you made in the first week you were here, you've been here a few months now and are an active poster--so there is really no excuse for your continued ignorance.

OP is that super annoying kid in the back of class who shoots nonstop hypotheticals at the professor that are neither insightful nor interesting

Even for TLS, the social ineptitude here is spine-tingling.

On topic, and yes this is getting ahead of yourself, some judicial clerkships require you to submit undergrad grades. Why sell yourself short? There's plenty of fun to be had in college without totally blowing off your classes.

Wait, so you're saying it's acceptable to let other people copy your work? You do realize that this constitutes a violation of the honor code at most schools, right?
