3.85 or 3.89 GPA?

Postby iiibbystar » Tue Apr 24, 2012 2:01 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm just curious, but is there much difference between a 3.85 and a 3.89 LSAC GPA if you're applying for HYSCCN?

Not much at all. Around .04.

lololo

Also, check LSN's school profiles. You'll notice that a 3.89 is at or above most GPA medians. Chicago's 75th is 3.87, Columbia's 75th is 3.82. Also, Harvard and Stanford become more likely at 3.89 (median (H) or above [S]).

It helps.

EDIT> Although honestly, a single/two point increase on the LSAT will probably make more difference.

Same as the difference between Schrute Bucks and Stanley Nickels.

What is the exchange rate there?

TITCR.

Your chances for admission change quite a bit depending if you are below the median, at the median, or above the median.

It sounds ridiculous, but in this range, .04 does matter. I would worry about whether or not it puts me at or above median. At a school like UVA it makes all the difference, especially if you apply ED.
