What exactly does this mean for LSAC grade summarization

Postby lawschoolbound1988 » Mon Feb 03, 2014 7:03 pm

I was typing in LSAC grade summarization and found this other site:

http://or.lsac.org/HTML/Transcript%20Summary.pdf



My question is -- Can someone explain to me, what exactly it means on the GRADE CONVERSION TABLE on the attached website, what FOUR PASSING GRADES (highest 4.0) means?

Are they talking about grade symbols that have 4 passing grades? Or are they meaning if you retook a class three or four times that you passed? This just made no sense to me, because I was under the impression that every time you retook something all grades got factored in?

I would appreciate it, if someone could assist me with this question

They're talking about a system with 3 or 4 gradations of "pass" (e.g. high pass, pass, low pass, fail).
