:( Unfortunately, since your degree granting institution didn't do grades, your LSAC GPA will be 2.7

Isn't cumulative GPA the "LSAC GPA"? LSAC has informed me I have no cumulative GPA.

Really? I guess I was wrong. Congratulations, the only thing that really matters now is your LSAT score.

Did the working adults degree give you a bachelor's degree, because if it was something else, the 3.9 might be considered

I have seen some people with peculiar GPA situations underperform their LSAT score. Though the other degree info would help I would think. My point is I would apply to a wide variety of schools to cover your bases, it could be very hit or miss.

I'm planning to ED to Northwestern and do a handful of other schools in the T30.

Yes. My Academic Summary Report is already complete so nothing is going to change there at this point.

Lemme get this straight: you have no GPA and no LSAT score, and you want people to chance you? Ok. Just checking.

No GPA + no LSAT = chances from TTTT to T14. Send your resumes to LSAC and get a GPA.

I practice test above 170 so using it as my score is conservative.

Unfortunately, that's not necessarily an indication of how you'll perform on the day. Get a real score.

I took it three years ago and got a 167 (never actually applied anywhere). Feel free to post your opinions on that number, although I think 170 is going to be more accurate for this cycle.

All depends on how they're gonna calculate that GPA. Send it in and get back to us.

I don't think you understand...I do not and will not have a LSAC GPA. When schools get the report, GPA will be blank.

Decent chance you may actually have a 2.7.

Oh my B. Well in that case, it all depends on your LSAT, so just hold up, because that's gonna determine pretty much everything.

estimate your chances as if you have the median gpa at each school
