LSAC GPA Conversion Question

Postby Seraphos1 » Tue Jun 29, 2010 7:06 pm

Hi guys,

question for you regarding the conversion from my transcript to LSAC GPA. My school offers the ability to "retake" a course. Basically, i have a couple of B's and I want to retake them into A's. The thing is on my transcript it will show the following:

ERSC 1p91 B "Duplicate"
ERSC 1p91 A
I am wondering whether LSAC will count both, just the B, or just the A. Thanks in advances guys.

Since both grades appear on the transcript, LSAC will count both. Some schools hide the original grade on the transcript with a "RP" or similar grade, so in that case only the 2nd try counts.
