gpa lsac question

Postby O.J. » Mon Mar 30, 2015 9:00 pm

How do you know what your official LSAC GPA is? I mean, do you submit everything and then they tell you, or is everyone here just calculating it themselves? The reason I ask is, LSAC uses W's as F's from some schools but not from others, so I'd like to know for sure what my GPA is, according to them.

You submit your transcripts, pay for CAS, and they tell you.

If the W did not affect your GPA at your school then it won't count with LSAC.

Use this http://www.lawpad.com/gpa_calculator/ to calculate your Lsac gpa.

Clyde are you sure about that? I was told W's count as F's, even from community colleges. The CC's I went to and got W's at did not count those W's toward my GPA, so if you are right, I'll have an excellent GPA. I'd love to verify your statement, if anyone else knows for sure?

Clyde frog is correct, and I can verify through personal experience as well. Ws from CC didn't count

Wow, that's awesome. I read in here on a couple threads a while ago it did, depending on the CC, regardless if they themselves counted it or not. Thanks so much!

I have over ten W's at an old community college :(

But without them, I have a 3.8!

Thirding this.

But just have LSAC calculate it ASAP for peace of mind's sake.
