Law School Applications / chances ruined by county college grades
« on: November 16, 2005, 01:50:16 PM »
my situation is this: i have a 3.38 gpa from my degree granting school which i attended for 3 years,  i was awarded highest honors by my history department and my honors thesis was named the best in my particular graduting class. i also had a year immediately before that from a county college where i made the dean's list, but before that my first year out of high school i had bunch of c's and f's because i was a stupid 18 year old and my girlfriend at the time lived across the street from the college and i went to her house instead of going to class.
i have a 174 lsat and i believe i would be competitve with my degree granting gpa and that lsat at some lower tier 1 schools.  but with my bad county college grades my cum gpa is only 3.04.  i was so depressed by this.  i know i have no one to blame but myself for those bad grades but they are also not a reflection of my abilities and they are from 8 years ago. 
what do people think?  am i screwed?

when us news and world report makes it rankings what gpa do they use?  is it the cum. gpafrom lsac?  im afraid the schools im interested wont admit me because my cum. gpa is brought down by bad grades from a year of county college straight out of high school.  if the gpa from the degree granting school is used in the rankings, then i would think i would be in better shape.  does anyone have any info about this?
