I have a 3.64 CGPA after I recalculated my UWO marks. Do you know if that'll be the GPA that states will look at or could it possibly be higher after recalculating it to a state grading system?? As well do US LS drop any of your worst grades? Thanks!
Given that not all schools calculate grades the same way in the US (ie at some places an A- is worth 3.7 and at some places it is worth 3.67), LSAC recalculates all the grades in a standard format. (More information about exactly HOW this is calculated can be found in the FAQ of the LSAC website.)
I don't know how Canadian grades look in comparison to our system, but LSAC will know how to calculate them just fine. (You can call if you want.)
Also, given that all US law schools rely on the LSAC GPA precisely because it is calculated consistently for all applicants, ALL college and university transcripts MUST be included
(even if you did not graduate from there, or you took just one class a billion years ago) AND no grades are dropped
when making the calculation (though there are some special rules for W's etc, which can also be seen in the LSAC FAQ).
