Transferring
« on: December 13, 2004, 09:34:15 PM »
Can anyone tell me how transfer grades work in terms of your LSDAS GPA that the adcomm sees? Do they focus only on the grades from your final school, or do they take them all into the final score?

The LSDAS GPA includes every college class you have taken, but your report will also list your GPA from your degree granting school. The Adcom sees both GPA's.

I also transfered and was wondering the same thing.  I'm hoping they will place a little more emphasis on my degree-granting GPA, because it is a 3.94, which is a big difference compared to my LSDAS GPA of 3.79, which combines all of my grades, including college credit classes I took as a sophomore-senior in high school.  I really don't think those things should count as much.
