wicked confused about GPA
« on: July 08, 2004, 10:26:46 AM »
Ok, i emailed my law school career woman at my school and she said law schools care more about graduating GPA, not lsdas. But it seems here people talk more about the lsdas GPA. So which one do law schools care more about? and more importantly, which should I use for the calculators and which does the ABA and usnews use?

thanks a lot

I don't think I've ever heard anyone say that they value the graduating GPA more than the LSDAS GPA.  I thought all schools used your LSDAS GPA, hence I always used it in calculators.

That "law school career woman" is a dumbass.  Many applicants apply for admissions before even graduating college.  If what she said were true, no one could apply before earning a Bachelor's degree.  

FYI:  the first two numbers law schools look at is LSDAS UGPA and LSAT score.
