Petition for Readmission...
« on: August 01, 2007, 04:30:55 PM »
Hello all,

I was excluded from a tier 1 law school because my GPA was 1 point below the required GPA. I had some personal problems I was dealing with and am now in the process of submitting my petition for readmission.

Could someone pleaasssseeee edit/proofread it for me and provide me with some feedback?

Just send me your e-mail and i'll send it to you.

Thanks!

Paul

one point? like, you needed a 2.71 and got a 1.71?  or did you need a 2.71 and get a 2.70? or?

or maybe his school does a numeric average like 100-0

and he got a 71 and needed a 72.

but depending on how far that one point is will really alter what your pleading essay needs to be.  Do you happen to know if you were the single highest scoring person who got curved out?

Wait, are you talking about your application for admission or were you kicked out of a law program for having too low of a GPA?

I would too, but maybe you should ask a prof that you trust and who knows you from LS?
