I was wondering if someone knew which GPA law schools look at more closely from the lsac report. Is it the cumulative undergrad GPA or the institution GPA?
I am asking this because I had a bad frosh year at a certain school (2.5 GPA) but transferred to another school and got a 3.5 final GPA. On my Lsac report it says I have a 3.28 cumulative GPA (counting the grades from my horrible first year at that school) but my institution GPA is a decent 3.5. Which one will law schools look at more closely? And should I address it in a personal statement or maybe in an addendum? Any ideas on how to explain? Is there any school that will consider the institution GPA more heavily?
Thanks for the help!
