Re: Letter of Recommendation - GPA Reference Unclear

However, this GPA reference is not clear as this figure does not represent my Cumulative GPA or LSAC GPA (3.9x/3.88). This figure, if it is not a mistake, represents my Institutional/concentration GPA (4.0).

Whenever I requested the letter, I provided my transcript, my LSAC Report, and my resume which all noted the 3.9x/3.88 numbers.

What would be the best course of action? Is it safe to have a letter of recommendation (from a dean) which references institutional/concentration GPA?


i don't think this is an issue. it might confuse the reader but they know even deans are human and can make a slight error like this. don't worry, you aren't accountable. hell, you aren't even supposed to know what a l.o.r. says so how could you be responsible? relax
