admissions

Postby northwood » Tue May 18, 2010 1:42 am

do law schools look at graduate gpa's? my undergraduate gpa is a 3.52, and my graduate gpa is a 3.96... do they weigh graduate level grades at all, or does this not matter one iota?

I am just wondering, and hoping that it does, so that if i miss my target score by a few points, i have some sort of lifejacket.

thanks

they may "look" at them, but ugpa is what they'll use when deciding whether or not to admit you.

they have to report the 3.5 to us news so that is what will weigh heavily. The 3.96 is a nice soft though and will give you the edge over an applicant with similar numbers out of undergrad. Decisions will still largely be based on your lsat though so don't expect the grad gpa to save you. Get a 170+ and enjoy the T10.

grad record didn't seem to impact my cycle. Do well on the LSAT.
