I'll make this a poll too.

If anyone has a better poll configuration, please let me know.

I don't think they really care if your GPA is fine.

I did. Bottom of the top only though. 1F 2Ds but then finished strong.
My numbers and stats are in my profile. Schools smile on upward progression.

Interesting story.

Did you explain those grades by chance?

When you mention "bottom of the top," do you mean bottom of the T14? ...CCN? ..etc? Have you decided already on your school?

It's really interesting that one person checked HYS in the poll.

You're already dead in the water at HYS because of your GPA

Just focus on the lsat

I had a 2.8 GPA and I got into 3 t14 schools, 1 with scholarship money. I had one semester of all Cs and Ds. It's certainly doable. You absolutely need over a170 though.

I have gotten into Georgetown, Duke, and UVA so far with one D my freshman year. Very out of the ordinary though, my grades have been mostly As since (I accidentally overslept my final). I have over a 170 LSAT, though

Yeah. I don't think they care. I didn't know grades were important in college so just took classes I thought sounded interesting and never did any work or studied. Neuroscience crap, etc. I had one D but plenty of C's all through the board. I put in some effort into the LSAT and law school, and did well. Obv I was shutout of HYSCCN (though I didn't apply to all). PM me if you have any q's.

I didn't specify my GPA. I only said it was above 3.5. So there's quite a big range there.

And if your gpa is above a 3.7 you would have said it's above 3.7

You have like a 3.56
