UGPA By Year
« on: February 09, 2004, 09:03:55 PM »
Here's the deal, folks.

I've been out of undergrad for almost 6 years and am trying to get into law school.  Yay.

Anyway, my GPA sucks.  2.9.  HOWEVER... I changed majors after my first year, so if you take out my first year of undergrad, I have around a 3.4.

I also have a 172 LSAT score from December's test, 1 very good LOR from a former boss, and (I think) a pretty good personal statement.  Finally, I also wrote an addendum explaining the GPA.

So... do schools take GPA trends into account as well as the final number?  Or am I screwed?

BTW, my first choice is Northwestern.

They (admissions comittees) definitely do take positive UGPA trends into account. Good LSAT (great in fact). Plus an addendum and the LOR (really good one) gives you a chance. But it won't be a sealed deal until you get the LOA  ;)
Saty patient and positive and apply to safety schools, just in case.  :)
GOOD LUCK
