I know the one classes count I had 17 one unit A's for playing basketball a great system for keeping retarded jocks GPA's up amazingly 6 guys were still ineligible. Those 17 a's helped me get a solid scholarship to law school, so I know for a fact that the 1 unit classes count towards your overall GPA. It is B.S. and really sucks for people that take hard classes in undergrad, but the idiotic U.S News rankings need to be satisfied so if you are still in undergrad it would probably be good to get a few more B.S. A's in Frisbee golf etc if you can, because it well help you get admitted and get potential scholarship money. Study abroad and for the F's and R's I am 99% sure they just take what is on your transcript. So if for example the semester you got an R and it still says you have a 3.2 then the R didn't count for anything. If you have 3b's and the R and your GPA is 2. something then the R will have counted for an F or at least that is how I understand it. I had a W (withdraw) and it did not have any negative impact on my GPA so I imagine it is the same thing for R's, but that is just a guess. -
