Saw this on an internet forum. Well...it was one of the links to the ruling that was shared and the caption written by this individual was "one of the reasons I want to go into law".

actually I guess the autopilot response is to go into full cynic mode when people give a rationale like this. The specific issue of SSM aside, I don't know if it's such a bad thing that people feel a desire to go to LS because of a specific social cause or experience that they have been intimately involved in or impacted by. I think where people go wrong is assuming that this desire will translate most definitely into legal work that helps remedy these issues. you're much more likely to be doing transactional work than you are fighting in the halls of justice on behalf of xyz issue

My UG GPA is pretty decent, but my study abroad classes in London were absolute crap, so I stopped caring about them since they didn't count towards my UG GPA. I'm pretty sure I'll get like a 3.33-3.5 equivalent for my study abroad classes, which is significantly lower than my UG GPA. Any idea about this, and if this even really matters for applications?
did those credits go toward your undergraduate degree? That's why lsac ask for transcripts for anything related to UG like a community college summer course you took in high school that transferred toward your degree. If somehow you didn't use those credits or you made them P/F so you only get completion credit, those grades should factored into your gpa.
Yes they count toward the completion of my degree, but they do not count toward my undergraduate GPA. Also, the guidelines on LSAC seem contradictory. They want transcripts from all the places I attended, but they only want foreign transcripts if I attended for more than a year, which I did not. The classes should be included on my undergraduate transcript since they count towards completion credit, but, again, they don't factor into my gpa.

If you're wrong, into the volcano you go.
