A+ in LSAC GPA

Postby PJENNEWE » Wed May 18, 2011 8:08 am

Why are A+s possible in the LSAC GPA? It puts a lot of people at a supreme disadvantage when applying because not every school has A+s (such as mine). I would have two A+s (I have a 98 or higher percent) IF it was possible.

I am in favor of A+s. Still have a year left and I have 34 credits of them.

I went to a school where they had A+s but they didn't affect your GPA, so they were pretty rare. The only time I got one was when I took an exam in a class where there were six exams, and just going by how well I did on the first 5 I already had at minimum an A-without taking the sixth .

But at other schools some majors give out ridiculous A+s, I know of a department where the average gpa is 4.0 (and, obvi, it's not a difficult major like "quantum physics, organic chemistry and James Joyce").

So, in conclusion, life is bullshit.
