does high school dual credit go into your law school gpa?

Postby Aabbcc112233 » Fri Apr 17, 2015 12:52 pm

While in high school I took AP calculus and we received dual credit with a local community college which I then transferred over to my actual undergraduate institution. I received B's in both classes and the B's do not show up on my undergraduate transcript but just as a transfer of 9 credits to my current university. Will these B's be calculated in my law school school gpa or will they just be like pass fails? I have already checked online but can't get a clear answer. Thanks for your help!

Yup. Every grade you received before your first Bachelor’s degree will count towards your LSDAS GPA.

A 3.93 puts you above every median in the country. Keep it up, kill the LSAT, and you'll be fine.

A lengthy GPA addendum can benefit you here.

I can say that 110% your high school credits will not go into your law school gpa.

OP clearly means LSDAS GPA but now I clearly see that you were joking.
