Quick GPA question

Postby a_fireinside » Tue Apr 06, 2010 3:00 pm

I have a 3.45 GPA from undergrad, which is a LSAC 3.35 because I was a transfer. Not including a 1 year study abroad I did at the school I am currently at. I am currently a graduate student. A) Do i need to send those transcripts in? (both the study abroad, and graduate transcripts) and B) Do my grad transcripts calculate into my LSAC GPA? Thank you very much for your help.

unless I'm mistaken, you need to send ALL transcripts from every institution you've attended, even if it were only briefly. My friend did one semester at a community college and had to jump through hoops to get that transcript to LSAC.

send all transcripts regardless of institution and year attended.

All courses that you have taken previous to earning your first Bachelors degree will calculate into your LSAC gpa. Any courses you have taken after earning your first bachelors will be considered Post-bac work, including graduate work and classes you take for fun. Post-bac work will not calculate in your lsac gpa, it will only be viewable as a transcript.
