GPA Question

Postby boosterman » Mon May 07, 2012 6:40 pm

I have a 3.59 UGPA from GA Tech but before transferring here, I had a 3.93 at Penn State.
After adding quality points together and dividing it by the total number of hours, I got 3.67.
I'm assuming my LSAC GPA is 3.67. Is my assumption correct?
Also, will law schools see my GPA as 3.59 or 3.67 or possibly both?

Thank you.

They will care only about whatever your LSAC GPA is.

Assuming your schools weighed things the same way that LSAC does, yes, you're correct. Everything will be added together and averaged so you have one LSAC GPA. Schools will still have both transcripts, though, and could look at them to see how you did at each place.

lawschoolpredictor.com has a good LSDAS GPA calculator.
