Currently shitting bricks over the LSDAS GPA conversion. I'll try to explain this as clear as possible.
Canada has an entirely different grade scale. My schools out of 13 (13 is an A+). 50% is a pass, 63-66 is C, 67-69 is C+, 70-72 is B-, 73-76 is B etc.
Now, this might sound awesome to Americans but keep in mind the curve is set to a C+ (67-69%). Achieving marks north of 90 is nearly impossible, especially in my program where its essay based and therefore incredibly unlikely that you receive perfect (or near perfect) on anything.
My LSDAS GPA is a 2.6 (yes I am planning on hammering the LSAT and retaking until I do really really really well. Yes I have the bibles and preptests, lol). This is like a 69%. When I send my transcript, I believe that all they see if my final letter grades. I just checked my student account and thats exactly what it says; it lists my grades by letter. Will LSDAS follow this, or convert it to American, as in back to a percentage? If so, I am fucked despite whatever LSAT score I have. I'd need a 180 to get into Florida Coastal. I seriously donno what the hell else I wanna do w/ my life other than be a lawyer. Anyone help?
