yep, i just called the community college today and confirmed that they know I exist. DAMN. i was hoping since this was like 10 years ago, they would have forgotten about me somehow.so can anyone confirm that this community college "D" that i received 8 years ago as a freshman in high school will or will not factor into my GPA? From what I've read on this board, it kind of sounds like LSAC will count anything and everything. but I dont know that anyone's situation is quite like this. I received no high school OR college credit for this stupid class, and now its gonna lower my GPA by a whole .1now im pissed that my mom made me take that stupid summer course that i didnt even wanna take.
The only reason I'm discouraged by this is because I'm told that the LSDAS GPA is what law schools need to report for rankings, so therefore why would they care that the D is from before I hit puberty? All that matters is that the D is in there, and that it's pulling my GPA down from a 3.8 to a 3.7.This is just really bumming me out, because I got a 2.9 first year of college. After that, I dedicated my life to school, stopped partying every night, and ended up getting 4.0s every single semester to pull my GPA up to a 3.8. Now this stupid class my mother signed me up for when I when I was 14 is negating pretty much a year of hard work in advanced 400 level accounting classes. Just great.If and when I apply to law school, there is no way im going to try to hide this. I just don't have that in me. It just sucks cause I hear nonstop that law school admissions is all about your numbers (LSAT + GPA). Even if I write an addendum explaining that I got the D when my voice still hadn't dropped, the D will still pull the GPA down. A number is a number, and an addendum wont have any affect on their school rankings.Sorry for being so emo. But can this LSDAS system get any dumber?
