Undergrad Transfer

Postby CardinalAmbition » Fri Dec 19, 2014 7:42 pm

Hi Everyone! I'm new to the forums as i am just beginning to consider Law School. During my Undergraduate career I transferred from Rutgers University to University of Miami. Unfortunately, I was ill during my last semester at Rutgers and had a bad semester. (My final Rutgers GPA was 3.2) Since transferring though, I have been healthier and really worked hard and have a 4.0 through 2 semesters. If i continue this upward trend, alot of stock be put in my Rutgers GPA?

EDIT: Forgot to mention, What i am also afraid of is that they'll admissions would say "Oh, Miami must simply be an easier school" and disregard my Miami GPA,

1) cumulative gpa is all anyone cares about
2) slight edge to upward trend
3) just to be clear, review 1).

Keep the upward trend going, and when it comes time to apply, a GPA addendum for your final Rutgers semester may be appropriate.
