How would my medical school grades be factored in?

Post by JoblessAndHopeless » Mon Mar 19, 2018 8:59 pm

Hey guys, I'm a 30 year old, graduated from medical school in 2014 with MD degree, and long story short, decided clinical medicine wasn't for me, so I quit my residency.
I'm seriously thinking about law school (was interested for long time), but had a question about GPA. I went to Berkeley for undergrad, cumulative GPA was 3.43.
Now I know grad school grades are calculated for LSAC. However, my medical school was on a Pass/Fail basis the first 2 years, and then High honors/honors/pass/fail system the last 2 years in clerkships. I generally sucked in medical school, so I received straight Pass all across my courses. Do you guys know how this will affect my LSAC GPA? Bring it down or up, or same?

AFAIK, no, grad school is not part of the calculation. It ends at the completion of your first bachelor.

So my F in my anatomy class doesn't get factored in? So do I even have to submit my medical school transcript?
