Boosting GPA at CC

Post by AGC54 » Mon Aug 03, 2020 4:41 pm

My GPA is pretty low due to blowing off a lot of class when I was 19, I earned mainly C's with a couple D's and F's scattered in if I was too lazy to withdraw. That was over 10 years ago, I managed to get back into school this past year and luckily so far I have only gotten A's. I will apply to law school October 2021, would it be wise to take a couple CC classes to assist in boosting my GPA before applying?

Side question on the note of withdraws, I have a ton, probably 15-20 from 2007-2010. I know LSAC says they aren't computed but will schools looking at them see that as a huge red flag?

Thank you all for any input you guys will provide.

You're going to have an uphill battle no matter what, but to clarify: Have you already received a bachelor's degree?

No, not yet. I will graduate in spring 2022.
