Upward Trend in Grades
« on: March 29, 2004, 08:00:42 PM »
How much do admissions officers take upward trend in grades into account?  My grades have gone up every year I've been at UCLA.  I was at about a 3.0 my first 2 years, and have been near a 3.4 my last 2 years.  Does this help any?
Thanks

Probably just enough that you would be preferred over someone with a downward trend in grades and with a similar final GPA.  Just my two cents. =/

Very little, and only in the most extreme of "on the fence cases" (2-3%).


I have four cents-- but I'm far from a dime.

thechosen... I have an almost identical grade trend from UCLA also.  It would be interesting to compare the schools we get into.  What was your major?  And your LSAT score, if you don't mind me asking...

Have you been rejected to any schools that you have applied to? Just curious for my future chances.
