the question is if they are so inclined. that's the piece of information they're trying to glean.
I've heard the same thing about the UG GPA - that you should list it if it looks high, even if it didn't get you latin honors at your school.On the GPA vs. LSAT thing: I figure if a recruiter thinks "but for some youthful indiscretions, this guy would be at Harvard," that's a bit better than "ah, yet another generic candidate from mediocre School X." Some might respond in the absurd way dasharashi did, but I'm not sure I'd want to work at that kind of shop anyway.
I'm hoping the groupthink among recruiters is different.
yeah, the student who would have been at harvard but for some youthful indiscretions IS the generic candidate from mediocre school x.
If it's easy to do, then why the heck didn't you bother?
