Undergraduate Degree GPA question

Postby lakerfanimal » Mon Aug 16, 2010 12:41 pm

The search function is disabled. If someone can help me out, that would be awesome.

On applications, it asks for your undergraduate degree institution GPA. Is that what's on your school transcript, or the GPA that LSAC assigns you for that school (which may be higher from A+'s)?

Thanks!

List your LSDAS GPA. It doesn't really matter considering they will get a copy of your LSDAS transcripts and use that as the GPA they decide on.

Schools don't care about the GPA your school gives you.

Ah, yeah, the one LSAC lists for your school, not your transcript.

I list my LSAC calculated version of my degree GPA (which is what appears on your summary report anyways-- I just used to GPA calculator to figure it out before I had that reference)
