If you attended two colleges where the classes are worth dif

Postby ashleyhashly » Thu Jan 28, 2010 9:19 pm

If you attended two colleges where the classes have different units values how do you calculate your lsac gpa? To clarify, I spend the first year and a half at a school in california that a semester class is worth 3 units. I then transfered to a school in MA where the semester classes are worth 4 units. Will those classes just count more or will LSAC adjust it and if so how? Thanks for the help.

The grades will be calculated as if you took them all at the same college (weighted by units of course).

Sorry I'm still a but confused does that mean that they will not adjust the units and the ma classes will just be worth more? I unserstand that it will be calculted in 1 gpa but not quite sure how. Thanks a million

Classes that say 4 units will count as 4 units, and classes that say 3 units will count as 3 units. There will not be any adjustment. I have no idea why you thought there would be. :?
