GPA conversion question

GPA conversion question
« on: May 11, 2006, 01:35:51 PM »
I am wondering how my GPA will be translated by LSDAS. 

I went to Western in the late 90s and I am the proud owner of a 70.85% 4 year GPA.  Which on Western's grade scale at the time was a B. The scale had no pluses or minuses, except for A+. 

I would think that it would be possible to look at the chart located on the FAQ section for LSDAS.  But that chart shows a Scale out of 100 that is definitely not how our scale worked. 

So is my GPA a 3.00 as a straight B? Or is it a 2.7 as a B- (which is what OLSAS says)? 

Just curious, as I have not taken the plunge to sign up for an LSDAS account yet.

It would be considered a B- so 2.7.  It won't be grandfathered by the old scale.  It will be marked in accordance with the new standards.
