### Will LSAC round my LSAC 3.6996GPA to 3.70?

Hi All,
I calculated my LSAC gpa using the various scales (4.33 = A+, 3.67 = A-, etc. etc.)

When I finished the math, I got to a result of 3.6996. So, my question is whether LSAC will round this up to a 3.70?

Unless they don't understand significant digits, yes.

I'm not looking for what seems logical because I think it would be logical. I'm looking for confirmation from people who have actually been in this same scenario and can confirm LSAC will round up.

Thanks

They only report with three significant digits. I don't know if they round, but they won't put 3.6996.

Yes, LSAC will round GPAs to 2 decimal places, so you'll get a 3.70.

Yep, I can verify that. My 3.746 became a 3.75 after all was said and done.
