I'm just curious about this... my second semester grades aren't going to be great, though in the whole scheme my overall GPA probably won't go below a 3.4.  But, has anyone ever heard of a law school revoking an offer of admission based on senior year grades?  (Not "senior year grades so bad that the person doesn't even graduate," just somebody who had a 2.5 or so.)

i think the senior slide is pretty common.  if you graduate, you should be cool.  just don't get any DUIs.   :D

I haven't heard of an offer of admission being rescinded, but I do know that scholarships can be. Temple said in their acceptance that their scholarship offer was contingent on my current GPA, and should it drop (I'm guessing considerably), so would their offer.

I read a story a while back about a graduate student who was accepted to law school and had his offer revoked.  Though, I believe he was indicted on murder charges...oh well.

berkeley says they'll do it in their admit letter. Other than that, highly doubtful.

Once you are in, the law schools generally likes to keep you.  And once you start classes, you would have to commit a serious crime to get kicked out because my law school reminds us that every year 1,2, or 3 of the 600 students will get a DUI, and cause themselves a lot of future trouble with the bar, that said, once you are in school, even a DUI won't get you kicked out.
