3.8 MBA GPA - LSAT question

Postby mrnick » Mon May 17, 2010 6:29 pm

Lets ASSUME I can pull off a high LSAT, say 170+

My undergrad GPA was 3.34, just finished my MBA w/ a 3.8 - both are from accredited universities, but not top 100 or anything

I would like to get into a part-time program in the Chicago/Milwaukee metro areas, DePaul and Marquette come to mind.

Do you think its possible to get a scholarship to either of these schools if I did that well on the LSAT?

Your MBA gpa is not going to matter, but with a 170 you can for sure pull a scholarship at those schools.

So will they just look at the undergrad GPA?

Do you mean why did I get an MBA and now am considering attending law school?

If so, honestly the MBA wasn't very challenging and right now I am just considering my options.

I think a MBA/JD would be a great stepping stone into business or labor law.

Thanks for the feedback, a little bummed I thought my MBA GPA would carry more weight, thanks again.
