The unreportable gpa is making my sisters chances far more unpredictable than mine (though she's a better student) I had a 3.6gpa I think she has a 'superior' rating and/or first class honor something something from england. Any insight from y'all is welcome
I don't know very much about URM stats (and certainly not URM/international stats) but generally it seems as though for all international students without a reportable GPA they focus far more on the LSAT. The superior rating will help somewhat as it demonstrates a good academic record, but arguably the main reason law schools care disproportionately about the LSAT and GPAs is that they influence the rankings. LSAC don't translate foreign transcripts into a GPA but rather just a classification: superior, above average, average and below average. Your sister's grades (and my own) won't impact on the GPA proportion of the ranking at all, this data is excluded from what they report to the ABA. Probably best to view her grades as roughly median GPA for a non-URM candidate but that involves some speculation.
