Law School Admissions / Re: So LSAC does in fact count A+ as 4.33 ??
« on: August 02, 2004, 12:07:45 PM »
I don't think my school gave out A+'s either... That kinda sucks when you figure in that some schools do and don't.  Do schools actually look at the transcripts or just the GPA I wonder...

As with so many things, I'm sure it depends on the school.

I'm sure the schools I applied to looked at mine.  My three semesters of academic probation, scholarship terminations, semester off, and final 2 semesters of decent (3.7) grades probably had to be seen.  :)


Sounds like we have something in common. My first 3 semesters I didnt do so hot. Well, I got good grades in all but 2 classes. Namely, the ones I didnt go to.

As for this 4.33 thing for A+'s... crap! My school does not give out A+'s, just A's. A 90% is the same as a 100% on the transcript. I do suppose it helps just as much as it hurts.

Here is an article published in the Yale Herald that may interest you on the ED process being re-evaluated.

Meat-man... ever since my son was... never born, because I've never had consensual sex without money involved... I've always kind of looked at you as... a thing, that I could live next to... in accordance with state laws.

Do not start a sentence with and or but in your presonal statement.

I think i disagree with this.  Like Lexy said, there's no set rule.  Plus, it depends how you want your personal statement to sound.  If you want it to be extremely formal, then it probably wouldn't be a good idea ... otherwise, I say go for whatever ...

But I do not think it is a good idea. And, furthermore, I am the authority on proper sentence structure.  :o

despite his babyface, i have a sneaking suspicion "aboynoir" is just a pseudonym for the director of admissions at yale

If you are going to operate under that assumption, would it be out of order to promise you admittance in exchange for a date? Touché. ;D

I would assume, as a general rule, that if you owed any money over $500 and were not on good terms (i.e. paying on your account without being past due) with the business then this would apply to you. Hopefully I will not have any unresolved debts haunting me from my undergraduate career. I remember, about a year ago, it was not uncommon for my roomates and I to decide wether or not we were hungry enough to bounce a check and pay the $20-$30 fee associated with it. :-P
