reapplying to the same schools with a better GPA

Postby Gail » Wed Jan 18, 2012 12:51 am

but not a better LSAT


Thoughts?

Assuming someone retakes and only gets the score they received the last time. So basically, higher GPA, same LSAT, would it hurt them?

For example. Would someone be penalized for being rejected from Cornell because of a low GPA and then reapplying with the same LSAT (median at Cornell) and median GPA?

No one will care you are applying twice. They will just look to see what is different this time around. They will say oh he has a higher gpa!

How did you get the higher GPA? Were they classes you took after you were awarded your degree? If they were, then the school won't consider them and you will still have your low gpa.

Still in UG and I've had 4.00s the last few semesters. This semester will also probably be 4.00 and it could push me past a lot of median GPAs
