LSAC GPA?

Postby Easy-E » Fri Mar 18, 2011 7:19 pm

I read in a sticky that the LSAC gpa may be different from my university GPA? I failed a class, then through my schools "grade forgiveness" system, I retook the course, removing it from my school GPA...am I to understand that in terms of law school, the F will be included??

Does it still show up on your transcript? If yes, it will be included.

Hm, now that would be interesting considering LSAC weights the value of grades based on how many units they have attached to them. You might want to call LSAC and ask them directly.

Also, is it outside the realm of possibility to get it removed from your transcript, considering your school's policy is replacing the grade?

I'll be sure to do that, thanks. And I should probably see about the schools policy, I can't imagine why they wouldn't just remove the course unless they have some personal vendetta against me going to law school :)
