I took a math class as a freshman, jacked around, and got a C. I took it again my next semester and made an A. I just looked at my LSAC transcript and there is no record or a C being counted toward my GPA. I think you might be right.

LSDAS will factor them in your gpa calculation if:

1) the course grades show up on your transcripts, and

2)you would have received credit for the courses if you had passed them.

Is that what you're asking?

This could help me, I failed a class my 2nd semester and retook it the next semester and got an A. Would that mean the first F isnt counted?


If that is true, my gpa could be raised :P

I suspect you're confusing "credit on transcript" with "credit toward graduation." When you say U of T does not give credit for your D+ calc course, that can mean either:
1) Your D+ and number of credits appear on the transcript, but U of T ignores it because it doesn't count for graduation. In this case, LSDAS will count it.
2) Your D+ appears on the transcript, but for 0 credits. In this case, LSDAS won't count it.

Take a look at your official transcript and see if it says 0 credits or something else next to that D+. LSDAS does not care if your classes/grades count for graduation credit - as long as you got nonzero credits of any kind showing on the transcript, they will count.

I had one F a couple semesters ago from a pass/fail math class. I screwed on the final (passed EVERYTHING ELSE) and in turn they failed me. I took it again next semester and got a C+ (sucky, but still passed) Will the F be counted towards my final LSDAS GPA?

Your LSDAS GPA will reflect both grades, unless the original was totally wiped from the transcript.

Someone posted this in another thread and I found it really helpful... you can look up your school and see how LSAC interprets the grades on your transcript.
