Bad GPA/ Good LSAT
« on: January 27, 2004, 05:56:00 PM »
I have a learning disability that went unnoticed throughout college, resulting in a 2.38 GPA and 152 LSAT.  I have worked with therapists and retaken the LSAT and got a 162.  I have explained the disability and the process of overcoming as well as learning from it in my personal statement, and I was wondering if anyone had any insight or suggestions with respect to my applications.  I have been very reasonable with my choices, but I wonder if this GPA completely eliminating me from consideration entirely.  Any insight or advice appreciated.

Thanks

Your situation (and fair LSAT score) does give you consideration just as perscribed in the addendum I am assuming you should go to law school just fine (the UGPA is rather low but there are mitigating circumstances) Good luck!
