+1, but remember it includes all college courses you took. For example my UG recognizes my summer school class at community college as P/F, but the LSAC shows an A.

Depends on the applicant. Is the applicant at median because of a bad first year and has an upward trend thereafter? Or is there a downward trend? In the former, I think they'd presume it would continue to go up. Keep in mind after 3-3.5 years of schooling your GPA won't rise/fall that much barring a complete failure in 5 classes.

^^ What KMart said.

Schools will want to see your fall grades. You submit your spring grades after you have been admitted and deposited.

I almost wish I could have waited as my ls gpa went up .2 points from end of last spring to graduation. Like these folks said though doesn't work that way.

Pass/Fail or Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grades are reported as A's by LSAC if you receive a Pass or a Satisfactory?

They aren't; classes for which you received a P or S don't go toward your LSAC GPA calculation. (But Fs do.)
