No first year grades at university - will law schools care?

Postby BlueBirdFlies » Sat Jan 07, 2017 10:49 pm

My university does not report first year grades on the official transcript - they just show as Pass/Fail, even though internally grades are used. Has anyone had issues with law schools wanting these grades? (American uni btw)

Thanks!

Your school probably has a prelaw adviser. I tend not to put much stock in them, but this is something they may have experience with.

Where is this magical school and why wasn't I smart enough to go here?!

Shouldn't have issues I believe all the school would do is provide information about not giving out first year grades

I went to a school like and so far I've had no issues so far (I think it helped me as my cumulative GPA was higher). Lots of folks from my college have also gotten into all the top law schools.
