Which GPA will law schools look at?
Quick question from one of my readers:
Before I transferred into a 4 year school, my GPA at a community college was 2.5. However, at my 4 year school, my GPA is a 3.6. Which GPA will law schools look at?
The short answer is “neither.” When you apply to law school, you will submit transcripts from both your community college and your 4-year school to the LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service. The LSAC will then aggregate the two. Keep in mind that even if you have only one transcript, your “LSAC GPA” might not match the GPA on your transcript. The LSAC makes some adjustments to certain grades in order to account for things like honors classes, pass-fail classes, and differing school policies on how a class that’s retaken should affect GPA.
Please don’t overthink this. Just go ahead and submit your transcripts to LSAC, and let them do the work of figuring out your official LSAC GPA. There’s not a lot you can do about it anyway, so save the brain cells and get back to studying the LSAT… which is a much more powerful factor than GPA in any case.Read more

Only your highest LSAT score counts
It’s amazing how persistent bad information can be. Hardly a week goes by where I don’t get an email like the following:
I’ve heard from other students that if you take the LSAT more than twice, law schools won’t consider you a candidate. Is that true? I’ve heard from others that they average both of your scores.Read more
Apply to law school for free? Just ask!
Just a quick note from one of my LSAT students who asked for (and received!) several application fee waivers this cycle:
Thanks for the help with my fee waiver memo. I got waivers at Duke, Georgetown, Boston University, Cornell, University of Virginia, American, and Columbia. I also got a few more fee waivers after my LSAT scores posted. Definitely saved me over $1000. Got snubbed by NYU, Fordham, Stanford, UC Berkeley. They all encouraged me to apply for a need based fee waiver through their website.
I got a 150; Should I retake the LSAT?
I get angsty emails each December, as law school prospects decide whether to apply now or retake the LSAT, putting their applications off for another year. Here’s one, from Angela S., a student in my online class:
I got my LSAT score back a few months ago, and I got a disappointing 150. I had been testing between 153-156 steadily and my last test before the big test was a 157! (My starting point had been a 140.) I’ve been having a hard time with deciding to re-take or not. The LSAT bracket I am in is 149-153 for LSAC, and say I retook it and got a 155 or 156, I would only move up one more bracket…. I know there are some schools that I could do really well at, but they would never even look at my application because of my LSAT score.
Short answer: Hell yes, you should retake! Nobody wants to put off law school for another year, but you absolutely should not let one bad day determine the entire course of your professional and financial future.Read more
