Although I'll end up graduating summa cum laude from Wake Forest, my lsac gpa is closer to 3.3 because I performed HORRENDOUSLY at a previous institution (colgate). Also, based on the practices I've taken, I'm sure I'll destroy the LSATS. How much do upward trends and lsat scores matter to elite law schools like harvard, penn, uva, duke, etc, especially as a black male (based on the spirited discussions you guys have had, this apparently helps profoundly). Should I forget the aformentioned schools? Thanks.
