A few questions concerning GPA

A few questions concerning GPA
« on: April 08, 2006, 02:13:07 PM »
I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask, but I'll try..

Do major GPAs only include classes from your department (ie. classes that begin with EE if you’re an electrical engineer) or does it include all classes that you’re required to take (ie. math and general education requirements)?

Class rank- is that overall rank in entire graduating class, just within your college, or just within your major? Does it only include the people that graduated the same semester as you or the entire year?

Are class rank and latin honors (cum laud, magna cum laud, summa cum laude) based on overall GPA or major GPA?

On lawschoolnumbers.com, when it says LSDAS GPA: X.X (X.X- degree), is the degree GPA a cumulative GPA before LSDAS gets a hold of it or a major GPA?

If you double major, a class that is required by both degrees won’t get counted twice in your LSDAS GPA, will it?
