Anybody see the Reno episode where Travis was giving the grade school kids a tour of the jail? 

One of the funnier segments on television.

Yep, been here about a week. 

Must be nice not having to move for LS!!!!!

The 3 schools you listed are all top 15 schools.  You will be fine.  Good luck.

Are we talking equal cost here or does the OP have a scholarship to Hastings?

edit:  oops, i see he/she said in state so Hastings is cheaper.

I see what you're saying.  If in doubt include something I guess.  But even in a minute you know what they are looking at:  your LSAT, GPA, undergrad institution and major.  If they say different they are full of it.

They they take it into account much less so than they advertise. They're held hostage to the numbers game.

Well it is kind of a boost.  A 3.3 engineering GPA doesn't require an adendum.  The OP can target schools based off his lsat score which simplifies things a bit.  A good LSAT plus a decent engineering GPA is pretty strong. 

But yeah it is a numbers game so the schools will deal with the gpa if you have something else to offer. 

I did in info interview last spring at Duke and asked if they were aware that an electrical engienering gpa around 3.4 is a MUCH stronger GPA within one's own program than compared to the school average with all majors. My response:

"You better write an addendum"

don't assume anything. Some school put flat out in their literature they do NOT take major account when looking at GPA. From my experience (see LSN and keep in mind the second LSAT is of late) they take major into account less than you would hope!


I'm a little surprised Duke would say that.  Makes it hard to give advice to people applying now.  Seems every school does it differently.

hehe thanks!

CCN?? H??

Should be good to go at CCN, at least 50% for H i would think. 

Oh, and no i'm not a URM to the poster that asked. 

Good luck.

I agree with the above.

I had the same GPA in chemical engineering.  I got in  where I was at or above the median in LSAT.  So they will look past it if your LSAT is what they want. 

Bad news is scholarship money is hard to come by unless you are way above the median for LSAT. 

Good luck. 

where did you get in and with what lsat?

Low 170's.  Got into CCN range.  Dnged by H.
