Usually zero, but if any school isn't going to give a crap about LSDAS GPA vs. "real" GPA, it's Yale. So...good luck. I know your (cogito's) long story really sucks...I probably would explode if all that happened to me.
care to share? I wanna explode. I mean geez, 4.0 to 3.2 is a heck of a drop
Spent two years in college without caring much about school (2003-2005). I earned 2.0 during those years. I was 18 and 19 at the time, and was preoccupied with pretty cool/interesting work that involved traveling all over the country on weekends/summers. Left school to take a full-time position in 2005. I returned to school five years later, completed 60 credits of 4.0 class work, graduating in May.
So I'm graduating from my degree-granting institution with honors, 4.0, etc., but applying to law school with 3.2.
I'm coming to grips with the fact that I might very well be this cycle's only applicant to graduate w/ 4.0 and a 99th percentile LSAT, yet fail to gain admission to a t-10 law school.
First world problems eh?
