i think the general consensus is that if you graduate you are good, or at least don't have straight D's or something.

Just pass once you've already been accepted and you'll be good!

BUT remember, if you get waitlisted somewhere, they're gonna want your newest grades.  Having bad grades definitely isn't gonna help you get in!

overloaded 4.0

Why do you ask? And why would I be concerned?

Hm..Well I am concerned that you may have misread this post.  You can keep your senior year grades to yourself..........I was posting on the importance of senior year grades with respect to admissions status at accepted and waitlisted law schools.  You may keep your "overloaded 4.0" to yourself.  Ass.

Thank you so much for your concern. However I can assure you that you need not be concerned. I believe I read your post quite correctly. I am concerned, however, that you may have misread my sarcasm.......... and next time you may want to make sure that your pivotal question is actually explicit. That will make it harder for me to mock you.

Hope this helps.

(seriously though, no harm meant kid. But your question was lousily vague. FWIW, if you send them a letter telling them your grades, yeah, I'm sure it factors in. If you don't.... dunno, the better minds can answer that.)

No harm done.  I did not mean to sound snippy, and the "ass" at the end was completely inappropriate.  My question was vague because there was a recent discussion on how senior year grades influence law school decisions, and the thread was directed at people familiar with that discussion, and similar discussions.  The other two posters had no difficulty understanding my question, and provided helpful advice.  I guess i just didnt find your comments very helpful.  Oh well.  Like I said, no harm done, and I apologize for the hostile tone in my last post.

Senior year grades dont mean sh!t if you are already in.. Just pass.

Waitlisted schools might ask for grades, so understand that is a possibility.

I am a fellow birdman fan.  Although I must say I find some of the episodes a bit disturbing.  Such as the one where peanut is selling Birdman drugs, and in order for birdman to fund his habit, he must "pull tricks" on the street.
