LSAC international student GPA ranking.

Postby justwondering123 » Sat Jul 16, 2011 12:51 pm

I was just wondering whether any knows how lsac calculate such a thing. Also their own breakdown, so fellow viewers and i can get some sort of a picture of how LSAC works in this area. Any other information on the topic would be great as well :)

You should use the search function... It does help, and there were many international applicants this past cycle, including me.

I have been searching but so far not able to find anything great.

Ahh i think another member had mentioned you. Your 2.2. got a ranking of 'above average' correct?

would you happen to know how lsac calculates such a thing.
if i was to apply after finishing law school in the UK (therefore having 3 years worth of grades- 2.2. , 1st and 1st) therefore equating to an overall first would lsac rank it to superior as that is what the domestic university has given it, or work out an average in which the mean would have to be 70% plus, would this equate to a superior?

LSAC don't evaluate it, the Credentials Assembly Service which I believe is part of AACRAO do. You might find info at http://www.aacrao.org
