You know, at first I was like, "this changes everything, foreign study doesn't get calculated into LSAC GPA," but I went and looked it up, and they do factor in grades from U.S. and Canadian schools, so nevermind.

What do you mean by differently? LSAT and GPA are the two most important factors at every school, by a pretty large margin. Don't believe whatever the schools themselves say about the admissions process on their websites. They are being intentionally vague.


Some schools prefer high GPAs and some prefer higher LSATs. A splitter has less of a chance at Berkeley or Duke than he does at NW or GULC for this reason.


I'm asking the OP because I have a sneaking suspicion that the OP is using "differently" to mean something along the lines of "there are good schools that will let me in with my terrible numbers because ____."

There's no changing OP's GPA, which is why schools like NW and GULC have been recommended as best-case possibilities IF OP can break 170 on the LSAT.

Assumptions always lead to problems. I've learned at least that much by writing the LSAT.


Makes no difference. You want to be a legal professional in America. You need to know that the capitol is not actually in a state on the opposite side of the country.

Here's a correlation of LSAT to Law school: http://www.top-law-schools.com/rankings.html
Here are two different methodologies for correlating law school to job prospects:

What's the source and time period for the google docs spreadsheet you linked here? I've seen multiple good docs on employment outcomes that all seem to be different.

The data is from last year. Special thanks to DRMGUY for creating it

Law won't give you an opportunity unless your parents are filthy rich. A 135 to 170 is impossible. You'd need to meet with a tutor daily for a year and totally change how you think. It is a 20k investment.


A social work program won't accept someone with a sub 3.0 GPA either.

OP is as far from a 3.0 as i was from a 4.0 and my gpa was said to be too low for lol school.

I also never studied. Ever. I did nothing and got that gpa. I had a high diag and then decided to stop being a loser. OP seems to have really tried. He can maybe acquire other skills. He seems nice but I'd eat him for breakfast, shit him out then reeat him, and I'm not even a gunner. He'd get destroyed.


You eat pieces of shit for breakfast? (Or maybe brunch I guess if you have to wait to shit and then eat it again).

That's two thus far, Shooter.

I'm beginning to understand the 2.37/143
Still can't wrap my head around the tutoring part


reminds me of this


By the way, I'm Canadian.

Um, if you want to work in the US as an attorney I'd learn the difference between St. Louis, Washington state, and D.C.
