What does LSAC do to lower your gpa? I have never taken any pass/fail classes, so would my gpa be lowered?

I had that problem too- in my case, all of the lab classes I took were weighted at 4.5 hours instead of 3.3 like all other classes. Because my college doesn't discriminate between the two, a B in a bio class is the same as a B in a music class. However, I typically do worse in science classes; since LSAC weights them more, my GPA went down. I'm not sure if that's what happened in your case or not!

That's very important to keep i mid since in all my science related courses (social sci and astro physics) were all A's that measn that would help and not hurt me huh? Cool.  Good to keep in the old memory depository.  8)
