GPA on resume after UG graduation?

Postby crazi4law » Fri Jun 08, 2012 11:22 am

Do most people list their final UG GPA on their resume when already attending law school? Wondering if I can get away with slacking during senior year.

Does your final UG GPA matter during OCI? (planning to go to a T6)

Do you know when you'll be receiving your first semester grades? I don't go to a T14, but we didn't get our grades until late January, so when you were applying for 1L summer jobs in December, you didn't have anything on there other than work experience and undergrad.

Don't slack. If you don't get into the T6 of your choosing, you will be stuck with that crappier GPA for any subsequent applications. It might also hurt you on the real job market if you decide not to go to law/grad school.

I didn't list mine because my gpa was only a 3.3. I didn't apply to 1L SA spots, but in my judicial interviews no one asked me anything about UG aside from making remarks about the school.

There's a pretty recent thread on here about this topic. I just put the latin honors on my resume after I graduated and I wouldn't put the actual GPA unless it's really impressive (like 3.9 and above).
