How much did your GPA change?

How much did your GPA change?
« on: October 08, 2008, 05:58:57 AM »
Being bored this morning, I sat with the LSDAS guide as to how they compute GPAs and tried to figure mine on my own, noticing it decreased very, very slightly (which was much better than I expected given some of the horror stories I've heard).

So, I'm curious. How much did the LSDAS computation actually affect your GPA? Did anyone's GPA go up?

In regards to my school, they valued a __- grade to be higher than LSDAS, but a __+ grade was valued lower, so I practically evened out.


eta - I'm asking out of pure curiosity. =) for the record, mine decreased by .013

Due to poor first year and a half grades at another school, the difference between my UGPA and LSAC gpa is a .47 or .49 difference (can't remember exactly)

Should I use the LSAC GPA on my resume or should I use the GPA that is on my undergrad transcript? (mine went up just a bit!)

how do you guys figure out your major gpa's? Does your school provide it for you? Or do you calculate it based on the classes required for your major/honors degree?
