Postby michiganlady222 » Sun Aug 18, 2013 6:35 pm

a bunch of apps ask for high school gpa. would it be better to put in my sucky high school gpa, or to seem lazy and just leave it blank or put NA?

It truly doesn't matter so do whatever you want.

I just want to know what apps these are. I applied to 17 schools and never hit on this. Some asked for all institutions to include high school, but I don't recall it having a section for high school GPA. If it did, it never mattered considering I never filled it in.

High school GPA matters in law school admissions as much as late charges at the library.

...which schools are asking you about your high school GPA?


At least a couple of HYS asked. I have absolutely no idea why.

Guys stop being dense. I remember multiple top 14s asking me. It's probably for socioeconomic data. That's all.
