    because he wanted strong academic preparation. I have advised many transfer students and it would not at all surprise me if Obama's grades took a nose dive initially and then recovered. Harvard Law has the discretion to look at trend lines as well as averages. When we did graduate admissions the students who were headed upward generally outperformed students with higher averages but worse trends.



    Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? . . . and respect the dignity of every human being.
