Urgent question about extra community college classes to raise my gpa!

Postby pleaseberkeley » Wed May 16, 2018 1:47 am

I am in my second to last semester. I will have 117 Units done after this semester. This summer I will take my final 3. If I take a few community college units this summer, will they count toward my LSAC GPA? They will be recorded at the same semester as my final 3 units to make 120 at my undergrad. My GPA is roughly a 3.69 on the LSAC scale so this can make a difference.

Yes all courses count for your LSDAS GPA until you graduate.

I did this, too, but I do tell people to be aware of unpredictable college professors who grade harshly. I had one very sweet community college professor who gave everyone in class, even us hard workers, around a 3.0 grade, with no explanations other than that is what she felt like. I tried to appeal my grade, and got nowhere. Check out professor reviews online (ratemyprofessor, etc.) and really think about whether you need to do this to secure acceptance at a law school you want. Even a CC class can be expensive and a time suck.
