Law School Admissions / LSDAS GPA v. University GPA Addendum
« on: March 04, 2009, 03:33:16 PM »
My LSDAS GPA is about .3 lower than my actual GPA as a result of two 'No Passes' (I was under the impression that a NP wouldn't come back to haunt me or have an impact on my GPA). This difference puts me outside of the GPA 25th percentile range for several of the schools I'm considering. I have fairly good explanations for why I didn't pass these classes and I plan to write an addendum. My LSAT is pretty solid.

Question: How much weight is given to a well drafted addendum? If my GPA was 3.6 but LSAC says it's 3.3 will an addendum be enough to convince them to disregard LSAC's calculation in favor of the University's?

Any thoughts would be great. Thanks.
