LSAC GPA

Postby Mr.JD2015 » Fri Jun 10, 2011 10:06 am

Do law schools pay attention to your LSAC GPA or University GPA? If someone had a 3.5gpa from their university but LSAC calculated it as a 3.1gpa, would they look at the 3.1gpa?

Most likely they won't even pay attention to the university GPA unless there is some unusual circumstance and even then it won't make much of a difference. So in this case, they would only care about the 3.1 GPA. A reason, if not the primary reason, is that schools report the GPA calculated by LSAC to US News.
