LSAC and LSDAS / How does the LSAC round grades?
« on: June 12, 2011, 11:55:30 PM »
I attend the University of Washington, Seattle and instead of giving letter grades you can get anything with .1 change. For example, you can get a 4.0, 3.9, 3.8, 3.7, 3.6, and so on. I was wondering what LSAC does when they figure out their GPA. Do they round up or to the nearest letter grade style?

I have a 3.9 in one class on the transcript does that round to a 4.0 or a 3.6 jump up to a 3.666?

How does this work?

So I am in quite a predicament. I am signed up for the LSAT on June 6th and I don't plan on doing to hot on it. I have not given it the time it deserves due to the fact I am taking 18 credits right now and the LSAT is the first day of finals week for me (University of Washington).

I also cannot take the October or December ones due to the fact that I am studying abroad in the Netherlands and the closest LSAT center would be 5 hours away.

Should I take a year off and get a better score or should I take it now so I can go to law school when I graduate?

My GPA is around a 3.6, Econ Major at UW (US New's Ranks UW at 41).
