LSDAS GPA System Question.
« on: July 08, 2004, 02:38:35 PM »
My school uses a 4 point grading scale from A to F.  The problem I am having is that I do not know whether my school uses a "4 passing grades scale" or a "3 passing grades scale".  In a 4 passing grades scale, a D is considered a pass, and in a 3 passing grades scale a C is lowest grade for passing.  My school is kinda weird, a grade of D is considered a FAIL if it is a course required in your program or a prerequiste of any kind, but it is considered a PASS if the course is an elective.

So does my school employ the 3 passing grades system or the 4 passing grades one?  I want to know b/c this would definitely affect my LSDAS GPA.
When in doubt on the LSAT, always choose F as the answer.

Since your school uses the A-F scale, I believe that LSDAS will use those conversions regardless.  I believe those two columns in the conversion table refer to schools with non A-F grading.

whether or not you passed seems less relevant than what grade you got and how many units it was.
