Black Law Student Discussion Board / Bad Grades
« on: April 28, 2009, 11:59:23 PM »
During my freshman year of college both of my parents lost their jobs, and in order for us to keep our house I had to get a full time job. (I took the real estate licensee exam and sold property). Anyways, my grades suffered mightily, and I was kicked out fro academic disqualification. After taking a semester off to work full time without any distraction and after my parents found work, I enrolled in a JC maintained a 3.3 gpa and transferred back to my University. I have since maintained a gpa over 3, but my LSAC gpa will probably only be around 2.8ish when I apply this fall. Do I explain this is an essay of some sort? Or do I just let my grades speak for them self? Some people have told me to not bring the issue up in my apps. Any advice? thanks in advance...
