Will t-14s revoke an acceptance due to a GPA drop?

Postby anonymousdouche » Sun Dec 07, 2014 10:57 pm

So for people who are applying before they graduate, how do most law schools (specifically t14s) tend to deal with GPA drops?

Do they revoke their acceptance? If so, at what point? Can you drop about .2 (from a 3.9-3.7) and be safe?

Also, out of curiosity, what GPA are law schools required to report to the ABA? The final GPA, or the initial GPA reported?

I'm asking for... a friend.

Entirely anecdotal, but my senior year grades were pretty atrocious (to the point where they likely would've pulled my GPA from above-median at the school I attend to a bit below) and it was a complete non-issue. You're fine.

That's reassuring. If you don't mind me asking, was this school in the t14? Also, did they require you to send a final transcript?

CCN. They did; to my knowledge most if not all schools require the final transcript + dean's certification combo (no need to update transcripts with LSAC though).

Perfect, CCN is what I'm aiming for.
