Second Undergraduate degree

Postby ramu_arul » Tue Dec 17, 2013 3:32 am

So in my undergrad days. I did not take my grade to seriously. Passed out of it with a degree, and I did not get stellar grades. But recently I was talking to someone, and they suggested, I should do a second undergraduate, to improve my grades. Now I'm from Canada and it is an option many people chose. But I plan of applying to American Law school. So I was wondering generally how American universities take to a second undergrad. Also can I use my GPA from the second undergrad to apply to law school, instead of the first one. I wrote my LAST and a 165.

after you get your first degree your LSAC GPA is set in stone

Just to verify. Your GPA is only based on grades earned until your first BA. Your GPA is locked in.

It doesn't seem a good idea to me that 7 additional years of school will improve your life.

Spend 7 years getting ahead.

Agreed.

Get a job. Save some money.
