LSDAS vs UG GPA

Postby voytek » Wed Oct 03, 2012 6:29 pm

Hiya folks,

So, this question has come up a lot when LSAC gpa < UG gpa, but I am in the opposite situation. LSAC's processing of my transcript led to a higher gpa, by about .1. For the record, I only have one UG institution.

As far as i know, schools report LSAC gpa so they should care more about that one. Is it safe to say that is the one I should put on my applications?

Wait -- So in the application portion where you supply the GPA for your University, you're allowed to put the LSDAS GPA as opposed to your official University GPA?

I'm putting in what LSAC calculated as my university GPA

Yeah they also ask for rank so UG GPA is definitely more relevant. I feel like it could come across as snobbish to give a higher LSAC GPA

Yeah, I put my university GPA on apps since that's what's on my transcript/resume and what the rest of the world (except LSAC) and I consider to be my actual GPA.

Hm, it seems like the verdict is out on this one. I guess I'll just put my UG gpa to play it safe since they'll have both numbers in front of them anyways.

I put my lower, LSDAS GPA on my app, and uGPA on my resume. I say so the same thing. .1 can give you a big bump, and I've only heard of them caring about LSDAS. I mean they raped me on my GPA, I say take bounce back karma and run with it.
