Question from college senior RE: LSAC calculating gpa

Postby cipher59976 » Sun Mar 24, 2013 10:52 pm

Hey guys,

I am a new member and I have a question that I was hoping someone could answer for me. This summer, I took a spanish class at a local JC. Due to a few circumstances, I decided to withdraw from the course. As a result, I received a "W" in the class.

On my JC transcript, the W does not factor into my gpa but the "attempted credits" from the class still appear. Thus, my transcript has the units attempted from the class and then a zero for credits earned. Will the LSAC count this as an F when calculating my lsac gpa? Or will it just be counted as an unconverted grade since the JC didn't factor it into my gpa?

Thanks!

My transcript shows the same thing, but the W's weren't counted as F's.

It won't count against your GPA.

Read the LSAC FAQ.
