Confused about Academic Summary Report
« on: August 24, 2005, 05:09:37 PM »
Well I sent in my transcripts last Friday and they were finished processing today (rather quick I know!) But i am really confused. My UGPA from college is a 3.622, but on my summary it is a 3.59. I have no withdrawls, incompletes, or Fs, so I dont understand what would account for the drop in the GPA. We use the same 4.0 scale so im confused. Could it be that my institution offers +'s? Can anyone help me figure this out?

You're going to actually have to do the math here for yourself.  Look up LSAC's exact policy for configuring gpa, and go through your own transcripts and do it yourself.  It's definitely not unheard of for LSAC to make mistakes.
