My daughter is a junior, political science major in the honors program at UGA. She has a 3.88 gpa ( would be a 4.0 except for a couple college courses taken in high school.). She will be graduating next May. She is also fearful that she may be getting a couple B's this semester.
She has been told that she must have a 4.0 to get into law school. I think this came from another student - nobody in authority. She is now thinking that she will not make it into a good law school and is beginning to give up on it. She also didn't do well with the LSAT prep questions that she began to look at over spring break. She had done no prep before this.
One other thing that she has been told is that UGA doesn't take people with UGA undergrad degrees.
First, what are the facts about gpa needs for getting into law school? Second, does anyone have knowledge of UGA accepting UGA grads? Lastly, does anyone have any words of wisdom that I can give her. My husband and I are both musicians with no experience or knowledge of any of this. We don't care if she goes to law school. We just want her to be happy. She is really stressing and doesn't know what to do now.
Thanks for any help and guidance.
