LSAC GPA

Postby SoapyIllusion » Thu Jan 09, 2014 8:00 pm

So I understand that all grades received before your degree will be included in the LSAC GPA. I was wondering if this is still the case if one of the classes was a JC class in the form of a physical activity, such as swimming. Would this 1 credit class factor into my overall LSAC GPA?

Edit: What about NCAA athletics? I am a 2 sport athlete and both sports are listed as a class with a credit denomination of 1 unit which is repeated over the course of 3 years. Would this factor into my GPA as well?

Did you receive a grade in these classes?

If you did, they will be factored in as long as the classes are completed before you graduate.

Is there a letter with a credit attached to it? Then probably. But don't bother asking us here, we're not the LSAC. Just send your transcripts in and they'll tell you.

You got credit for NCAA athletics? What the fuck.

Regular swimming class or whatever does count, if it's for credit.

I think there is a maximum amount of credit LSAC accepts towards your LSAC GPA with regards to classes that are repeatable.

Also, why are you worrying? If you have enough credits to graduate from college, I can't believe a few 1 credit classes are going to have any significant impact on your LSAC GPA. Unless you got an F in swimming or something.

My school maxed out our PAC classes at 1 or 2 and counted them as zero credits after that. And we definitely did not get credit for NCAA athletics. (Hell, we barely got priority registration for classes to work around practice schedules.)
