LSAC GPA question

Postby hinton2014 » Thu Oct 06, 2016 3:55 pm

Just a quick question about GPA. My LSAC GPA will be around 3.87, but my institution will be around 3.95. Will there be any weight given to the institution? I've only been at this college since graduating high school, I just messed up a class as a dumb senior in high school who didn't read the syllabus correctly in our post secondary program. I retook said course at my college and earned an A

only your LSAC gpa will matter. school will probably see that you retook the class, but both grades will count either way.

That's what I figured. Bummer, but nothing I can do about it now and am still set up with a pretty solid GPA. How do AP classes that are on my transcript as CR count? Or do they?

Nah, CR/NC won't affect LSAC GPA. Source.

Not really related, but when I'm doing my resume for applications which GPA do I put?

Thanks! That's what I thought.
