Do Law schools cut GPA slack to students at top tier undergrad?
I just completed my first year at Harvard and my GPA was lower than I had hoped. I finished with a 3.7 and i know this is too low for the law schools I intend to apply to in the future. I plan to get it close to a 3.9, and I have always done well on standardized tests (like the LSAT hopefully). Do top tier law schools give preferential treatment to students at very difficult undergraduate schools relative to applicants from less difficult schools? Will they treat a 3.8 GPA from Harvard worse than a 4.0 from an average state school? My dream law school is Stanford Law, if that helps answer.47 replies
