ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

My LSAC Degree Summary GPA: 3.02
My LSAC Cumulative GPA: 3.27
My UNDERGRAD Cumulative GPA: 3.53
My MAJOR GPA in Criminal Justice: 3.88

Reason for dif GPAs: I went from my first semester as pre-med with two F's and a Withdrawal to a double major (I added Criminal Justice to my already completed Psyc major) and I got straight A's in that subject. I wrote an addendum for schools to view my undergrad transcript, so they could see the increase in grades throughout my undergrad career.

Can you tell me the difference between LSAC Degree Summary GPA and LSAC Cumulative GPA?? My degree/major GPA is a 3.81 but I used an online calculator and maths'd my LSAC GPA at 3.1 but is there somewhere legitimate you went to find those numbers? Congratulations on all your acceptances! I love that you're updating with specifics, it's super helpful. I am also applying to Rutgers, Yeshiva, and Hofstra. Which way are you leaning based on your acceptances so far? Or are you holding out for someone special ;)
