I realize their floor seems to be a 3.0 for ED admissions. Will they round a 2.989 up?

Their floor does not appear to be a 3.0 looking at LSN. There is no reason for a school to differentiate between a 3.0 and a 2.99 if both are well below a school's 25th percentile for GPA. And even if a school had a strict 3.0 floor, why would they round a person's GPA to move someone above it? If they want someone who has a 2.99 they'll take them; they don't have to fool their own accountants by rounding that person's GPA.

2.989 isn't a LSDAS GPA anyway; see what you have after you convert to LSDAS
