Is getting the GPA closer to 3.0 worth $4,500?


Take summer classes online at a junior college. Correct me if I'm wrong but even if the classes don't count towards your degree they will still count towards your UGPA. For less than $1000 you could probably get 12 hours worth of 4.0 with very little effort over the summer. If I would have known that I was going to law school before I graduated I would have switched to an easier major and taken easy summer school courses.


whatever classes you take at whatever college you ever went to get factored into your LSAC GPA. Definitely do what the guy above said.

Consider applying to NU ED. They are splitter friendly, especially to those with WE.


college junior (December LSAT taker)

I'd consider taking a couple years off to do Americorps but by then schools will have probably raised their median-75%ile LSAT and I'd get locked out.


When the economy comes back the medians will come back down a little

Even then, do I have a better than 25% shot? Should I hand-deliver my contract?

I applied UVA ED with a 170/2.94, not the first day apps open but pretty close, and got waitlisted. I also have above-average softs (Army veteran + 1 year civilian full-time WE in a project management role). Not saying OP shouldn't apply but it's not a lock, they seem to really dislike sub-3.0 gpas.
