I'm trying to get into H for the entering class of 2015. I'm currently at a 3.93 and hoping that it continues to rise but its hard getting it to increase even the slightest. If I take summer classes, assuming I get all A's, I would be at 3.95, which is Harvard's 75 percentile for GPA. Is there any benefit of taking them to try and meet their percentile or should I try and get an internship or bulk up my softs.


I would say that if you don't have any decent softs, go for the softs. I would say that Harvard is not trying to keep a specific GPA 75% as long as it is above 3.9. It would seem very odd that they would reject you if you had .02 below as much as it would seem very odd that they would accept you only if you had above the 75%. The difference, even here, is pretty miniscule. However, I only say this assuming that your LSAT score is ABOVE the median.


-I'm an 0L though
