3.81 GPA (includes two Master's degrees), 162 LSAT, URM

Postby blainer » Fri Jan 06, 2012 8:52 pm

I was wondering what my chances are at getting into Northwestern's accelerated JD program. I have a 3.81 LSDAS GPA which includes two master's degrees (3.91 undergraduate GPA, but degree was awarded at the same time as master's degrees). Master's degrees are a Master of Accountancy and an MBA. I am a senior risk advisory consultant for one of the Big Four (three years of professional work experience) and have a few professional licenses (CPA, CISA, and PMP). I'm a Mexican-American male and was the first person in my family to graduate from college. My LSAT score is 162.

Only your undergrad grades go into the LSAC GPA.

That's what I had initially thought as well. After several phone calls with LSAC though, I found that because I didn't receive my undergraduate degree until after the completion of my course requirements for my Master's degrees, my graduate courses are included with the LSDAS calculation of my undergraduate GPA.
