Does Lower-Div, Upper-Div GPA make a difference?

Postby clairethesmurf » Wed Jun 01, 2011 2:32 am

Hello guys,

I was just wonder how is the LSAC GPA calculated? I have an upper-div GPA of 3.8, but overall 3.2. There was one quarter during freshman year when I got into an accident and was hospitalized. My college rejected my petition to withdraw from that quarter, so now my overall GPA is 3.2. Does a high upper-div. major related GPA make a difference on law school app? Or should I just aim for T15 - T30 schools. Oh I am taking the LSAT in October and my PT so far have been in an average of 173 ish. I am willing to spend a lot of time studying for lsat this summer. With work experience at a large firm as an assistant, i was wondering what are my chances of getting into T15 schools.

Any advice is welcome,
thanks guys :D

No, they don't care about the division. Do well on the LSAT. Write a GPA addendum explaining the accident. Good luck.
