Personal Statement / GPA Addendum
« on: August 14, 2008, 10:19:56 PM »
Would anyone be willing to provide some feedback on my GPA addendum? 175, 2.5. Thanks!

Yeah, I guess this question is being asked a lot  :) Thanks for the reply.

I'm chiming in because I am in the actual situation that the OP is hoping to be in. 175, 2.5- and I am also wondering about waiting for fall grades. Since I was teetering on expulsion after my freshman year, my grades have been solid and another semester would get me up to about a 2.75. Is that even better than a 2.5, or is it all the same once you get below 3.0?

Also,
1)How do I get schools to ignore my GPA and look at my upward trend and LSAT, and
2)What's the highest up the rankings I can go?

Thanks, and to the OP, go for that great score- it's all that's keeping me in the game.

Not really sure what the appropriate place for this question is, so here goes...
If I haven't yet registered for the LSDAS, but have completed the LSAT, will schools be notified of my score, and can I begin to get fee waivers?

And for 175?

-4?  -5?

4? Really? That would mean that a 180 was minus zero only, something that I don't think has ever happened. Or else, minus one for 180, and some score between 175 and 180 is unattainable. 5, I can see, even 6... not 4.

Cakewalk.... 7 Layer Cake....

Luckily, I have burnt all the LR questions out of my head and haven't been stressing. Except for one that was a 1/2 guess... Why does it even matter if you bought all the food in the house and keep it in the fridge, lady?

That one was mostly annoying and slightly time consuming... makes my head hurt just remembering picking through those choices.

I also seem to miss in the same range of questions regardless of the difficulty- I was praying for a hard test. No luck.



Your last post may very well be the only reason I get any sleep over the next couple weeks

Ditto.

The optimist in me is insisting that the games were a bit unusual and the RC threw enough people a curve to push the scale into average territory, but the realist tends to agree with you.

If the test is disclosed, the scale is disclosed, and contained in your report.

I'm not sure if there is a thread exclusively for this, although I know it has been mentioned here and there. What are your predictions, based on past scales and your feel of the test's difficulty. I feel like a -9 = 170 is possible, and -5 for a 175.
