constituents of LSDAS/LSAC GPA

Postby iheartkennypowers » Wed Jun 02, 2010 2:58 am

Hey all,

I just wanted to ask a quick question here regarding what is included and excluded in the calculation of an LSAC GPA. I looked on lsac.org, and i have a pretty good idea but i just wanted to confirm.

so basically i have included all classes for credits except for a 3. These 3 are credited however are only graded on a what is basically a pass/fail basis (only instead of being classified as pass or fail my school classifies them as like "complete, incomplete, in progress, etc."), and i have excluded all classes which are not credited.

so pretty much i have included credited, excluded non-credited, and excluded classes which are only like a pass/fail type thing

is this correct?

thanks

Sounds about right, if by non-credited you mean 0 credits. If you retook any classes, both grades will count as if you took 2 different classes. All college classes taken elsewhere will also count whether you transferred the credits or not, and even those taken during high school as well. Also, pass/fail classes are not counted if you pass, but count as F if you fail.
