how much will my lsac gpa drop?

Postby Frathard » Thu Dec 30, 2010 2:55 pm

If I graduate with a 3.75 but with the added calculation of 2 b's and a d I received in high school?

If someone knows the math off the top of their head I'd appreciate it as opposed to plugging all the numbers into the lsac gpa calculator manually


Thanks

One would need to know how many credits you graduated with and how many credits the high school classes you took were worth.

( 120*3.75 + 6*3+3*1 ) / (120 + 9) = 3.651

((120*3.75)+(9*2.3333))/(129) = 3.65

No my error was thinking his GPA was 3.72 instead of 3.75. Order of operations I have naturally memorized.

What, by saying we should give him the run around, making random guesses, until he looked it up for himself?
