does the lsac gpa combine undergraduate and master's degree?

hey tlsers,

i have a quick question about the lsac gpa. i recognize it might've been asked before; if so, i apologize. i have received both my undergraduate degree and my master's degree. i finished with a 3.7 gpa for undergrad, and a 3.9 gpa for my master's. does the lsac gpa combine the grades for your undergraduate and master's degree? in other words, will lsac calculate my gpa as a 3.7, a 3.8, or a 3.9? thanks in advance for the help!

It'll be your undergrad GPA. Your master's is fairly close to irrelevant in the admissions process other than a low-level soft factor.

yea, unfortunately it is just your UGPA. But hey, having a graduate degree definitely doesn't hurt you none :wink:
