How bad does my UG hurt?
« on: October 16, 2006, 03:24:00 PM »
Here's the situation:

'07 graduate from U of Arkansas - Little Rock

2 LSATs: 159, 172

GPA: 3.96

From LSAC transcript analysis:

    school's median GPA: 3.29 (of those registered w/LSAC)
    school's median LSAT: 147


How are they gpoing to view my UG at places like G'Town, Northwestern, Cornell (my favorite), etc.?


If possible, some of you could give me an idea of the medians for your school.

Appresiated

With a 3.96 it won't matter...you will be just fine.

Yea I wouldn't worry about your UG at all. Your LSAT is pretty solid, at least the second one anyways, and a high GPA like that will only reinfoce your LSAT score.

Low median GPA generally shows that the school does not practice grade inflation.

Go to USNEWS.com and look at the stats on each school your thinking of looking into. LSAC also has a lot of tools to play around with potential GPA and LSAT numbers

Didn't even realize I could access the transcipt analysis online until you mentioned it but after looking at it, I miss my blissful ignorance...

My UG LSAT mean is 164, with 41% (wtf??!) scoring with a raw score of 95 and up; 57% with 90 and above. Unlikely I'll be included in that, however. Boooo :(
3.7ish, 170+
