LSAC GPA Conversions

Postby SHANbangs » Thu Apr 29, 2010 10:23 am

How does LSAC convert decimals at the end of a GPA? For example, my converted GPA is a 3.26. Do they round that up to a 3.33?

Wtf kind of math is that? How does a 3.26 round to a 3.33?
First, they don't round GPAs. You got what you got.
Second, if they did round GPAs a 3.26 would round to a 3.3.
Third, LSAC does not convert decimals they just count all college grades you have ever gotten not just the ones from your current institution.

Do you mean 3.326 -> 3.33? If so, yes that's how it works.

Merichard,

Easy there. 3.33 was a typo. I meant 3.3. Second, what is your third point all about? I know LSAC counts all college grades, regardless of institution. But doing the math still gets you decimal points.

You asked how LSAC converts decimals, that was an odd question and made it seem as though you didn't understand how they calculated an LSAC GPA. And yea I just re-read my post, I promise I didn't mean to sound hostile.

LSAC rounds to 2 decimal places.
