how to compute GPA from 2 schools

Postby bartmann » Thu Apr 15, 2010 4:57 pm

Upon graduation from undergrad, I plan on working for 2 years to save up some money for LS.

I also plan on taking some business classes from the local community college. My undergrad is in history, and I know very little about business, and it would be pretty helpful to know some accounting , finance, etc.

I am assuming when I apply, they will want both transcripts, correct?

If so, how is my total GPA computed if I take 4 or 6 classes at the CC? Do they combine by % or do they just have 2 separate GPAs?

I'm pretty sure that LSAC does not count any grades after you have received your first bachelor's degree.

While I'm not 100% positive, I believe they only factor UG GPA up until the point of your 1st UG degree. Therefore, all of the classes @ CC will have no effect on your GPA.

This is correct.
