As far as I know, retaking won't help, since lsac will not replace the grades. For the most part, it seems like their policy is that the first grade is the one that counts, no matter what, although I would call and make sure (if you haven't already) to check and see what the deal is with your case and being sick. And as far as I know, A+s count as a 4.33 or something for lsac's gpa calculation, so you are getting more than a 4.0 for your grades. I'm not sure if this is how you factored your gpa or not.And HYS are the most fickle schools in terms of admissions, so a 3.86 and a 178 (which is more than fantastic) should balance you out. As many people have commented here, HYS don't really have any patterns with the numbers, and people with 180s and 4.0s often get rejected. (well, maybe not often, but...)
I have been called a male whore or an a-hole.....usually by females.
Here's my dilemma: I currently have a 3.87/178 from UCLA.... Given my stats, is it worth it for me to apply in January when those grades would come out instead of in Sept/Oct? I am primarily concerned about H because that is my top choice. Let me know what you think.
Here's my dilemma: I currently have a 3.87/178 from UCLA. However, my GPA is heavily inflated with A+'s.
YES.apply early, go to Yale, make lots of money, marry J-Lo, divorce her, take 1/2
