GPA issue

Postby Opuntia » Fri Aug 30, 2013 4:08 pm

I have taken a few correspondence courses from an outreach college, and I have got all grade A on those courses. No single credit was assigned for those courses. (Points 0.000, cum GPA 0.000). My question is : may I send it in to boost my GPA, since all A = 4.0 GPA?

Thank you for your advice.

You are REQUIRED to send in all transcripts.

If you took these courses BEFORE receiving your first bachelor's degree, then yes, it will boost your LSAC GPA.

I have read two articles about the LSAC GPA policy

1, Guide to the LSAC: Transcripts, GPA, and More

viewtopic.php?f=22&t=80326

Pass/Fail classes in which you passed, classes you withdrew from non-punitively
(i.e. withdrawal-passing), or classes for which no credit was assigned for the
course (does not mean classes you failed) do not factor into your GPA.

2, US/Canadian Transcript Summarization

http://www.lsac.org/aboutlsac/policies/ ... marization

Grades Excluded From Conversion

Those assigned no measure of credit by the issuing institution, regardless of the grade.

A No Credit grade that does not signify failure and for which no attempt at credit was made

No credit was assigned by your home institution, but was there any credit assigned by the school where you took the classes?

It won't effect your lsac GPA either way.
