Undergrad GPA vs LSDAS GPA
« on: May 20, 2007, 04:38:26 PM »
Does anybody have any idea how many of the admissions committees would weigh the undergrad GPA vs LSDAS GPA?

99% LSDAS gpa, 1% ugrad gpa.

For most people, it's all about the lsdas.  If you have a huge disrepency between the two, a good addendum might help, but won't completely overcome the lsdas gpa.

Is there anyway to calculate your LSDAS GPA, or do you just have to wait until LSAC gets your transcripts and figures it for you?

Take every class you ever took, and average the grades together, including grade replacements (LSDAS doesn't buy into it), pass/fails do not count if you pass, but count as F's if you fail, etc.. thats all they do.  It's nothing fancy.  The rules are even on the LSAC site somewhere.

Counting A+'s as 4.33?

Also, I have one course that's 1 unit and another that's 2.  Do these count as less?

It's pretty craptacular that LSAC "balances" the grades, but does not take into account that many schools do not have the 4.33 policy. :(

Saw dashrashi's LSN site. Since she seems to use profanity, one could say that HYP does not necessarily mean class or refinement.

Your BYU GPA will be looked upon favorably since BYU's one of the most prestigious schools in the West.  It might have equal weight with you LSDAS GPA.
