Dumb App Question

Postby FreeLolita » Sun Oct 30, 2011 1:29 pm

In the generic education section on the LSAC flex-apps, when they ask for undergraduate GPA, do they want your official university of ________ GPA that appears on your transcript, or do they want your LSDAS GPA?

Thank in advance.

Do you even have to give them this? It seems repetitive.

Schools get your GPA directly from LSAC. I don't know why they would ask you to enter it manually, and I have never seen it myself.

All three responses are baffling.

Ever single app with the "generic education section" asks this question. You two who have not seen it either have not filled out any applications (in which case why are you answering?) or you have filled out applications and not noticed this question (in which case why you are giving others advice?)

The few schools I called said to give your school GPA or "leave it blank."

Thank you for the help. I called it the generic education because it is not school-specific, and is exactly the same for each school's flex app.

I totally read the title of this thread as "dumb ass question." I leave without having my dreams fulfilled.
