  • GPA

What is going on with your GPA? Those two numbers are almost an entire point apart.

  • GPA disparity

86 of the last 89 hours I earned were ungraded. So, the bad grades I earned 10+ years ago make up most of my GPA. LSAC is counting the 9 hours of F (should've withdrawn instead of quitting) and my degree-granting school is not.

  • Good luck

G'luck on your applications. Did you include any explanation for the GPA in a Personal Statement or additional essay?

- moot
  • Explaining GPA to the schools

I originally wrote about 1.5 pages of simple, factual information on my GPA. I then wrote a PS that was unintentionally pre-occupied with explaining my bad grades. I had to write a new essay for the Chicago-Kent Honors Program, and I created a much better strategy. I wrote exactly one page giving the basic facts about my GPA. Since GPA is typically used to predict if someone can get good grades in law school, I then wrote a separate full page providing evidence that I can get good grades. Finally, I wrote the essay with the mindset that I had a 3.5 GPA from a good state-school like U of Texas. The result was vastly superior to my first effort. I feel sad that I didnt think of this idea in October, because I think it would have improved my chances at Georgetown. I did send the new copy to Harvard and Yale; hopefully they will get it in time.

  • Valpo Applicant

I got a fee waiver from Valpo as well. But my numbers are sort of the opposite of yours. My LSAT sucked (148), but I had a 3.76 GPA from my degree granting school and a 3.67 overall. I was wondering why you think you got rejected by Valparaiso. I have no idea if I'll get in there or not, but they were the first school to send me a fee waiver and because they aren't that far from Chicago, I agreed to apply.

  • Don't Want To Be A Lawyer?

Then why did you apply to law school?

- sblack
  • To study law

I applied to law school to study law; I like to learn.

- hunterhogan
  • Good luck

Good luck at the rest of your schools. You'll get into some good schools with your new PS.

  • USD

When did you hear from USD? Why did you decide to withdraw? Congrats on the HIGH LSAT!

- mike1975
  • USD

I never heard from USD. I decided to withdraw becuase their tuition plus high cost of living make it unlikely I will choose them over Rutgers.

  • Hey

Are you attending Kent for sure? I know its not your first choice but I am damn excited. Hope to see you there!

- sigepbaut
  • Headed to Kent

With my GPA, unusual academic background, and lack of interest in lawyering, finding a school that was interested in me was difficult. Sure, I would choose Yale over Kent's regular program, but I am still excited about attending Kent. See you there!
