3.65 78/90 vs 3.47 90/90

Postby kkklick » Fri Nov 05, 2010 6:01 pm

First year messed up first semester for a 2.0 GPA, transferred schools after leaving and got a 3.65 after I transferred doing 78 credit hours in 2 years.

My question is how will law schools look at my GPA? Do they sympathize with those in my situation or do they take everything into account?

Although people are very picky about their addenda on here, I would suggest writing one. If I was an adcomm and saw a 2.0 -->transfer-->3.65 I would just assume that the second school was easier and take you GPA for what it got me in USNWR rankings (i.e. not much unless you're looking <T50). If you transferred because of some personal reasons (i.e. bad fit with the school) I would write an addendum explaining (in 5 sentences or less) that you struggled personally at school 1 and school 2 was a better environment for you to succeed in academically.

They will only care about your 3.47.
