I know.. I see we have applied to many of the same schools. My LSDAS GPA is what the LSAC calculated my GPA to be taking into consideration all schools attended. My degree GPA is just based off the final University I attended according to the LSAC (I transfered a few times) Of course my GPA for each are actually slightly higher. (both of these numbers are found on your LSAC report that are sent to each law school.. check it out!) Good luck with your application cycle...

They sent me an email that my application had been processed and was under review. I had all my stuff in and ready when I sent them the app, which might account for the relatively quick turnaround. Good luck with your cycle...looks like you've got a good mix of schools on your list!

I did a lot of volunteer work, studied abroad, a community development fellowship and a community development internship. I also participated in a few orgs on campus. Good luck with Duke and the rest of your schools!

  • BC Waitlist Question
  • Saturday, March 01 2008 at 08:46 AM

I'm curious - are you on the regular waitlist or the priority waitlist for BC? Do you know if there's a difference. I'm also on the WL so I'm curious - thanks!
