I am wondering how law schools look at an Engineering degree. Do they forgive a slightly lower GPA if it is in engineering? My boyfriend is in Med School with an undergrad in Engineering, and they do not forgive a lower GPA as generally your reading/writing skills are weaker.
Like you, I'm an engineer. Graduated 10 years ago and worked for those 10 years, and am back at school right now taking some courses. I asked this same question to both the law advisor at my school and the recruiters that came to my school during career days. All assured me that the schools do indeed look at undergrad program when considering the GPA, and that an engineering undergrad program is looked at very positively.
Though these were all Canadian schools so I don't know how applicable this is for wherever you are looking.
