only two years of grades?

Postby jttoplawschools93 » Thu Nov 14, 2013 2:51 pm

just looked at my official lsac grade report, and i only have 60 credits. they didnt mention ap credits or anything. it does say "advanced credits" but no number or anything.

this is my third year of ug, and im graduating this year, so a lot of my credits are ap.

will this hurt me at all? or will they still just care about gpa and lsat

applying this cycle

Just LSAT and GPA. They have plenty of 3-year graduates, so they're used to it.

I thought AP credits count if they did well on the AP exam?

Almost every school gives you credit, but not a grade, for those scores. I think.

Fair warning, however, I did get a response from a t14 school saying they won't make a decision until they see my fall semester grades. I assume it has something to do with only having 4 semesters of grades, I was right around their medians so it looks like they just want more info. It's better than a waitlist so I'm not complaining by any means but I wanted to share with someone in the same boat!

Mind if I ask which T14? You can PM me if you prefer
