Actual GPA vs. LSAC GPA

Postby BoilerByBirth » Mon Nov 06, 2017 1:02 pm

Hey guys I have a general question! Regarding admissions statistics that schools put out about GPA - are the numbers they cite raw school GPA or are they the "adjusted" GPA that LSAC calculates in its academic summary report? Not a huge deal, but my raw GPA is a 3.56 while the LSAC one is a 3.62 so when looking at admissions statistics I'd like to know which one I should be using to compare myself. Thanks!

LSAC GPA is the only one that counts.

This may be the worst question asked of all time - but how do you find the LSAC GPA? I can’t seem to find any “weighted” one anywhere on my LSAC account. Thanks!

Have you submitted all your transcripts and generated an LSAC Academic Report?

if you've submitted all of your transcripts and they have been processed then go to credentials --> transcripts and look for your academic summary report. it should be at the bottom and it's your cum. GPA
