Which one is LSDAS GPA on academic summary report?

Postby forps » Thu Jun 02, 2011 1:04 pm

I have on the bottom of the report on the left side "Degree GPA" and on the right side "Cumulative GPA" which one is the one law school is going to use when assessing my admission?

Thanks in advance for any input!

They will take all of the grades on your transcript and calculate the GPA themselves. You can find a calcuator that will help you figure it out here:

They'll use the cumulative gpa, which includes your grades from every school vs. degree gpa, which is only your grades from your degree-granting school.

e: I'm assuming you mean on the LSAC academic summary report. If you mean your school's academic summary report, then what Para said.

I meant academic summary from LSAC website so calculation is not necessary but thank you
