Didn't think they'd be able to get over the GPA (Since about half of it was earned there).

yea, and i have a pretty good upward trend(really my grades arent so bad except for 2 quarters where my gpa was in the 1.something range).  i dont even think a 2.9 gpa is a problem for miami, or at least i certainly didnt expect it to be when paired with a 174.

Casca: Out of curiosity, how long have you been out of school? Are you on LSN? I'm amazed Miami WL anyone w/ a 174.

Border: Not sure who your question was addressed to, so I'll answer it, too.  I used my PS to talk about my work ethic and how I developed it.  I only briefly referred to my undergrad GPA.  I was shooting for a "my apparent weakness is my strength" kind of thing.

I am shocked Miami waitlisted you with that LSAT score. Your GPA isn't THAT bad. Weird. I guess it just goes to show that with a crazy split you just never know. Good luck to both of you  :)
