GPA question

Postby curly3426 » Fri Jun 04, 2010 12:47 pm

if my school does their GPA out of 4.0, do law schools take that into account.... ie do they scale to a 4.4?

No. That wouldn't even make any sense. What would they do, make all your A's -> A+'s?

This site should answer all your questions about LSAC GPA conversion.

Yes. Loyola Law School said it was ok, as long as the people who had A+'s now have A+*'s.
