Which grades are used for rankings?

Postby knznick » Sun Jun 24, 2012 4:42 pm

Which grades are used for the rankings each year?

Take this hypothetical for example:

Are the grades in the fall of the year you apply used (say an applicant has a 3.65), or are the final spring grades used (say the applicant got a 4.0GPA and now has a 3.7)? Do the schools use your fall or spring grades to report?

from what i've read schools report what your GPA is when you apply. if you don't update your transcripts that's what will get submitted iirc

I dont think so. I believe you MUST update your transcripts, and thus, the final LGPA is what counts. I am not certain though, since I had already graduated when I applied.

no, you mustn't. why do you think schools tell you to send your final undergraduate transcript directly to admissions, and not to LSAC?
