Does the LSAC count non college level courses for gpa?

Postby Lawyerwannabe18 » Fri Apr 02, 2010 11:14 pm

I took a math 99 class way back when at the local community college. Its not a college level course so I'm assuming they wouldnt factor it? My undergrad institution has it listed on my transcript, but its not factored into my gpa.

Any insight into this would help?

Thanks

I don't think remedial classes are counted--at least mine's were not, which was also a math 099.

If the grade's on your transcript, then LSAC counts it regardless of how your school counts it. The only exception is if the transcript indicates that the class is remedial.

No, they do not count. I just checked my transcripts.

I just looked at my Ug transcript and its not counted for any kind of credit so i figured it wouldnt be on there.

Thanks again for the replies guys
