I'm wondering if the fact that I'm on pace to graduate with 135 credits, 9 semesters' worth, in only 7 semesters will help me as far as low GPA forgiveness. I also never took any easy electives. Anyone have any thoughts?


No, it wont.

If you're serious about law. Stretch the rest of your UG out as much as possible taking as many easy courses (even...especially at community colleges) as you can to raise that GPA.

All they care about is GPA and LSAT, the GPA clock stops as soon as you graduate (grad school doesnt count). So if you want law, maximize both.

Sounds like a waste of time and money, though. Just max out your lsat score.

I didn't do that well on my LSAT 168... I had been Practicing at 174, but I guess I got Notre Dame syndrome and didn't show up on gameday.

It's like you were up 24-0 and just couldn't finish. Also interesting use of capitalization.

Now to be helpful: If you were 6 points off your average you should really retake. Also mess around with mylsn.info in the meantime.

You're not bad off at all. If you get your LSAT above 170, people with 3.5's get into T14s all the time...check out lsn
