LSDAS GPA Question

Postby JustSomebody » Fri May 20, 2011 10:47 pm

My undergrad GPA is 3.84 but my LSDAS GPA is 3.94 (My school gives out A+s and I don't think it's a "joke" school or anything).

So my question is... Since the only reason I make that rather large GPA jump is due to getting 27 credits of A+s, is my cycle likely to play out the way my LSDAS GPA and LSAT score predict it will? Or do you think that Adcomms will see the large jump in GPA, realize it is due to A+s which many undergrad institutions don't even put on the transcript, and evaluate my app as though it is closer to the 3.84 GPA? Obviously I'm hoping for the former case but I realize it may not exactly seem fair.

Schools get to report the LSDAS GPA. That's what matters to them.
