Dealing with different LGPA & UGPA

Postby lowdmouse » Mon Jul 01, 2013 4:53 pm

Stats: LSAT: 171 (June 2013), UGPA: 3.79, LSAC GPA: 3.63

So I took a few dual enrollment classes in HS and they are bringing my LSAC GPA down, as you can see (I didn't even need the credit for college, I wish I could just not send LSAC those transcripts, but oh well). As I look at odds on LSN or contemplate the benefits of a re-take, how should I think about my GPA? Is it like applying on an average of the GPAs? Or does the UGPA not really matter, given how rankings are calculated. I'm going back and forth on an addendum for those HS classes (ADD diagnosis, didn't figure out right Rx until college).

Looking at Berkley, Gtown, UVA, Harvard if possible

LSAC GPA is the only GPA that matters, and the one you should be using to calculate.
