Undergrad Transfer

Postby CardinalAmbition » Fri Dec 19, 2014 8:17 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,

Highly unlikely anyone will care about your grades at a specific school, they will only care about your overall LSAC calculated GPA.

When I applied my undergrad transcripts were made up of ~11 different colleges. My cycle went more or less as my numbers indicated they would.
