Hi John, Yes, that should round up. 2.99978 won't be read out to that extent, so since it's so close it should go to 3.0. Overall, 3.0 is not high for law admissions purposes, so you'll need to rely on your LSAT score to get you in. Most law school use an index formula that multiplies your GPA and LSAT score into a final number, and at many schools the LSAT is weighted more heavily than the GPA, sometimes significantly so. Why is that? Because the LSAT is the one universal comparison point that the law schools have between applicants. A 160 is the same in New York as it is in California. GPA isn't a universal comparison point because Stanford may have grade inflation while Georgia Tech might be quite rigid in their grading scheme (both of those statements are true, by the way :). You might want to visit the UGPA/LSAT search on the LSAC.org site at https://officialguide.lsac.org/release/O... . If you input your GPA and various LSAT scores, it will output the percentage chances for acceptance at various law schools. For example, here are a few results for FIU: GPA = 3.00 LSAT = 155 Florida International Law School admission chances = 19-29% GPA = 3.00 LSAT = 160 Florida International Law School admission chances = 71-86% GPA = 3.00 LSAT = 165 Florida International Law School admission chances = 90-100% The clear news there is that if you can hit 160, you have a pretty decent shot at FIU Law. 165 and you are in. Good luck!

Calla Originally Answered: How do I round out my characters?
Write up a history of each one. Set aside your story and write up something for each character. Include all their life-shaping events. Think about everything that ever happened to them that made them who they are. Who were their role models and who hurt them and who inspired them to be who they are now? Think about family dynamics as they grew up and what they are like now because of that. Write up what their daily habits are and what their values and morals are. What would they do for a thousand dollars? A million? What wouldn't they do for any amount? And one of my favorites, what do they carry in their pocket? When I work this and go this detailed, I find my characters navigating the story along with me. I hope I made it clear that what you write here is NOT part of your story. It only for you as you write to know your characters and bring them to life in your story.

Like David said, add a short back-story to each of them. It allows the reader to feel as though they know the important parts of the characters' lives. Connection is key to keep your audience.

I find it helpful to describe each of my important characters in a paragraph (no more than six sentences) before starting to write the story. The paragraphs contain outward appearance, dislikes, likes, faults, basic history, and habits because I tend to make my characters TOO perfect. After, you should add small details like "he chewed on his nails like he always did when he was nervous" or something like that. You can also incorporate the personality faults of your characters: if one is hot tempered, you could say "an annoyed grimace crossed her face as she opened her mouth to scream at him, even though he had only added one less spoon of sugar than was needed." (I know that one is horrible, sorry). Hope I helped :)

I always try to draw character traits from three people (per character) that I know or have seen on TV. That you have three makes sure you have a good variety, and it just helps me make sure they are acting like real people.
