I agree with being honest, but it allows you to NOT answer the question. Is it preferable to answer it?

college undergrad counts

and an upward trend is good, but some schools make sure that trend is not from easy courses (cornell said that)

Courses are only differentiated by their weight in no. of credits, not whether they're major or non-major.

The LSDAS gpa is the weighted average of all your courses' gpa values (score-gpa chart available on

Law School Applications / US firms with offices worldwide

If I want the opportunity to do big law with a US firm overseas (particularly Hong Kong, because it's my hometown), what schools would be best for such employment prospects? I believe a few years of local experience is usually needed, but working in HK for a US firm is one of my goals.

Would a t30 school do it? Does it have to be a "national" reputation school, instead of regional schools? What schools would have this reputation? T30? Tier 1? T14?

Let's see what part of the curve is on this board!

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Sept. '09 LSAT DONE...FIRST POST!
« on: October 01, 2009, 02:29:28 AM »
Did anyone else feel like they did, in general, better on the Sep2009 LSAT than on the other recent PTs (I did most PTs from PT47 onwards)?
I keep thinking I did well. Usually there are some tricky LRs and RCs that make me guess between two answer choices, but I didn't really come across this on test day. Which makes me feel like I did better on the actual test than PTs. But quite a few people are feeling the other way around, and this is making me feel very uneasy. Anyone else felt the same as I?

I don't mean to be harsh, but from what I know, a graduate degree will not mitigate a poor GPA.

For one, graduate GPAs tend to be inflated. Secondly, I base this opinion from what I've heard in other forums.

I think you are overshooting. You can try to see the stats of admitted/waitlisted/rejected applicants.

Also a good tool: It calculates your "index" (basically a score computed from the LSAT and GPA), compares it with the indices of the 25th and 75th percentile applicant, and predicts your chances.

Based on your numbers, loyola is a "weak consider", while cardozo is a "deny".
