weird GPA question

Postby dajja15 » Thu Jan 07, 2010 3:35 pm

How is GPA calculated. From what I have seen, it is your gpa until you get your undergraduate degree. My university offers a blended undergraduate + masters program (4+1). So, if I get my masters at the same time as I get my undergraduate, will my masters GPA count on my applications?! Probably not, but worth a shot.

Thanks.

Yes, all grades will be included in the calculation of your LSDAS GPA. This also goes from grades earned at others schools than your UG

if you're doing a co-terminal, isn't the 5th yr still technically the master's degree year?

really.... my graduate GPA will count towards my LSAC GPA as long as I don't get my undergrad degree. Can anyone confirm this? Is there somewhere I can see this?

I read somewhere on the LSAC website all grades prior to the first undergrad degree count in the degree summary.
