LSDAS GPA Calculations for an international applicant?

Postby thisvoid » Mon Feb 01, 2010 3:14 am

I have been getting good grades on my current degree (around 3.97). However, before this I studied in another school with quite frankly poor GPA of 2.75. Both are located in Southeast Asia. I understand that for a US applicant, grades from all institution before the first degree count. However, as I'm an international applicant, is it possible for me to submit only my transcript of the current degree? The reason I ask is because I have read that for US applicants who have studied at a foreign institution for a year or less do not have to submit the transcript for the period if the credits are not transferred to their home university? Am I correct to say that?

Thanks for all replies. It would really calm my nerves down, as I had found out about the way LSDAS calculated GPA yesterday.

Oh, right. How silly of me. Reading back on what I wrote, it sure is unclear. I am still an undergrad, and the previous school I attended for only two semesters. None of the credits were transferred.

I'm not sure what you have to submit, but you should be able to find out on lsac.org, or maybe someone else here knows what you need to do.
