3.87/168 with an...illustrious...undergrad history

Postby rwill » Wed Oct 26, 2011 12:34 am

I took the LSAT twice, scoring a 162 in June and a 168 this October.

My GPA at my current (degree granting) school is a 3.87. BS in Finance. However, I attended a different school for two years, and have a GPA of 3.72 from there, and a semester at a local college (I got a 4.0). The reason for my transfer was because I was suspended from school. It was for non-academic reasons, and my record is clean. How will law schools will weight this issue and to what extent it will affect their decisions?

EDIT: I was also considering using my "turnaround" in my personal statement. Is this a good decision or should I save it for an addendum?

My top schools right now are UVa and Georgetown. What are my chances at other T14 schools excluding HSY?

I don't think "illustrious" means what you think it does.
