Re: 3.3/171...still in undergrad with 2 quarters remaining

It depends on what your overall goal is. If your goal is to guarantee a T14 spot, maybe. But as far as economical? You'd be delaying law school a year, which delays your career a year. So the opportunity cost of that is pretty steep. I doubt the improved admissions prospects from a .1 gpa increase would ever outweigh that opportunity cost.

Depends on what you're paying to stay in for an extra year. As a somewhat similar 3.22/172 though, I can tell you that T14 admission is by no means guaranteed, and given the chance, I would absolutely go back and try to snag at least a 3.5. I didn't pay for undergrad though, so that would make it more complicated decision for you if you are.

Be careful with that. I stayed in for an extra semester and took a full load to try and boost the GPA and I ended up getting a B and thus didnt raise anything and had to take classes I didnt need instead of just working and relaxing.

Yeah, you'd probably be better off taking that year to gain some WE and then apply. You'd be making money and improving your prospects, rather than paying to do so. Plus, it would probably improve your prospects more than by just the .1 on your gpa.
