Ds on transcript!!!!!!
« on: July 03, 2009, 12:41:54 PM »


Hello,

I'm curious as to know how much schools weigh individual grades.  My gpa is a 3.3/3.6 undergrad and masters.  One the surface it's not too unbearably awful, but I have had two Ds in my undergrad and one in my master's program.  Will they take letter grades into consideration??


Thank you for your help and input!!

Yes, you're screwed.  Nobody wants a lawyer to represent them in a bankruptcy case when they got a D in physics, and the schools only accept people whom they know will be fine upstanding attorneys that are bankable.    I recommend a career in HVAC repair or diesel mechanics for you.

They'll look primarily at your GPA as a whole and not really at individual classes.  There might have been a way to mitigate the Ds in UG, but a D in a grad program looks pretty awful, to be honest.  I think that will weigh more negatively on your application than the 2 Ds in UG.
