Hi everyone this is my first post and I am glad to be here. I am a 31 year old husband with a 7 month old. My undergrad was in Psychology and I walked away with an embarassing 2.1 or 2.2 GPA. Awful. I screwed around for 4 and a half years and loved every minute of it. I graduated with Honors and 3.6+ GPA. Now I know the LSAT score really weighs heavily but will LSAC differentiate between my two Grades and two Degrees or will they review my transcipts and "decide" what my GPA is? If they do "decide", does anyone know how they get to a number? What would mine be?

I have to disagree. Graduate school grades are absolutely taken into consideration. They may not get sent through the LSAC, but they are worth mentioning. A majority of the students entering law schools are out of undergrad for awhile. They work in the real world, and many of them move onto a graduate degree.
Thanks for the input everyone.I was afraid the LSAC only looked at UG and now my fears have been realized. I can only hope the Admissions officer takes the MBA into some consideration. But I checked my UG transcripts and it wasn't a 2.1 it was a wopping 2.4+, hehe...Maybe if I look at them tomorrow my UG will be a 2.7, and so on and so on...Anyone know of anyone who had crappy UG but got into a law school program? I only read about how accomodating admissions are for non-traditional students but never actually know one.
