Just want to say hi to all my fellow Slugs out there.
I'm an old-timer with no grades from UCSC at all. None. Zip. GPA=0.00. I have a graduate degree, but that GPA doesn't count for much. Obviously, I was concerned about my competitiveness as well.
I asked this question to a bunch of reps at a law fair and on the whole got a pretty uninformed response (except from one University of Iowa prof whose daughter goes to UCSC). Most said, though, that they read everything and that without a GPA I'd get treated much like the international students. The rep from Santa Clara said they love narrative evals because they're like 36 letters of recommendation.
Anyway, I managed to get in to a bunch of schools and will be attending UT, so my evals per se couldn't have hurt too much. I bet they read them all and then examine the total package. Hopefully, your LSAT, letters, and essays all give a good impression.
