Reported GPA for Rankings

Postby pertristis » Fri Feb 12, 2010 8:01 pm

I've a quick question: when law schools report GPA to USNWR (or whomever) for rankings purposes, and an applicant has more than one LSDAS GPA in their report in their application, which GPA is reported? So, for instance, take a hypothetical situation:

October '09, first report sent has an LSDAS GPA of 3.0
January '10, second report sent has an LSDAS GPA of 3.05
February '10, third and final report sent has an LSDAS GPA of 4.0

I'm assuming the third and final report is the one the law school reports to USNWR, but I could well be assuming wrong. Any knowledge on this?

The most recent LSDAS GPA available is reported as ABA data, which USNWR uses.
