LSAC Question Concerning High School Grades

Postby Logjik » Wed May 19, 2010 10:22 am

I was wondering about some classes I took in High School for college credit. Now my UG transcript accepted most these High School classes for college credit, but my UG institution did not accept any of the grades from these classes. My question is, would these grades be counted towards my LSAC GPA? In addition, I took one class in high school for college credit and my UG school did not accept the credit for this class. Would this grade count towards my LSAC gpa?

I read a few older threads on High School classes for college credit and most agreed they would be counted. However, would they be counted even if my UG institution did not accept the grade?

Wow, thanks. I took 9-12 college credits in HS and received A's in all of them. That should help my GPA a bit.

Are you talking about AP classes?

AP scores (on the 1-5 scale) do not affect LSAC GPAs. If you received a number or letter grade, I think it will, but I am not sure.

They weren't AP classes. The were high school classes taken for college credit (the classes took place in my HS.)
