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.

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