I attended community college at one point. Some questions.

Postby LawyerBrah » Sun Apr 22, 2012 9:57 pm

I'll just be really honest. I was an atrocious student in high school who didn't really value education and had poor grades. After high school i matured a lot and decided that it was important to put an emphasis on learning. I signed up for a community college, studied hard, and after two semesters transferred into a four year state school. I currently hold around a 3.8 GPA and have started to study for the LSAT. I've been studying really hard and plan to put a lot of time into learning the test. I'm concerned that top schools may discriminate on the fact that i attended community college at one point. What do you guys think? How much do you think it matters?

In NO way, at all, will Law Schools care that you attentended a CC before university.
But yes your GPA will included all classes in CC and all classes wherever you went next

Awesome!

I figured that most schools probably wouldn't care but i was concerned that top schools may consider it a factor in admissions.

In my case my CC grades helped pull up my overall LSAC GPA, and I'm in at T14. You got nothin to worry about.
