LSAC GPA Duplicate course

Postby Blackguy123 » Mon Dec 23, 2013 9:37 pm

Hey guys, I was wondering, when you send transcripts from two different schools to the LSAC and they calculate you LSDAS GPA, what do they do if you have taken the same course at both of the schools? Do they just both get computed in, or does the higher score go in? Curious because I have a D + and an A for the same class

Sorry to tell you, but they will average both grades in. This is a reason a lot of people with high GPAs have lowers GPA's once lsac is done with them

How about Early-College courses taken during High School? I read that those get factored in as well, is that the case?
