why would you post your UG gpa?

Firms don't require it, and besides, it's not impressive...no offense

I don't know too much about UVA's curve, but I suspect firms will be more impressed with your LS gpa than your u-grad gpa so you should feel free to leave your u-grad gpa off of your resume.

The only time I've heard that people should put their undergrad gpa on their resume is if they're applying for IP and have a hard-science background.

If you got Latin honors, I would put those on, but the GPA is pretty irrelevant

Dean's list, leave it off or put it on?

Assuming that's UG dean's list... I'd put it on if you don't have to create a new line for it (on my resume, it shares a line with thesis honors, which definitely does go on there). Otherwise, don't bother. I doubt it matters, which is why I wouldn't waste a line on it.

Your LS GPA won't be on the official transcript that firms get from UVA. (Whether you want to put it on your resume is a different question.)

Yeah there is no transcript that you can get that has your GPA on it at UVA law. Makes me suspicious...
