Q about my Degree GPA (2.99 vs. 3.00)
« on: December 01, 2011, 11:43:34 AM »
Hello,

I'm in somewhat of a unique situation here:

2.99 Degree
3.17 Cumulative

Most people seem like they have D > C, but I had a downward trend..

Now, this may not matter much, but 3.00 just 'looks' better than 2.99 IMO.

How would this 2.99 affect my admissions?

As far as I know, they look at the LSAC cumulative and not the degree GPA.  Even if they do, its not that big a diff.  I wouldn't worry about it.

I agree with Fortook.  If you look at the online Official Guide to ABA Approved Law Schools, you'll notice that one can search by LSAT and UGPA and  not by degree GPA.
