Is it really possible that a grad degree with a high GPA matters? It would be nice; I have an MA in Constitutional Law Studies with a 3.9 GPA. I was told repeatedly that it wouldn't matter, which is fine because I wasn't thinking about law school applications so much as wanting to study something I was interested in.
I think most grad degrees are meh for law school, but yours will actually probably be a considerable benefit to you. Kudos.
If you're MA is in a cognate discipline to what you intend to practice FTW =)
