Always nice to learn something from our neighbors to the north.
on the US vs. Canadian note:Canadian schools give much much lower marks. The average GPA at a US college is somewhere around a 3.0 (or at least that's what I gather from what I hear on this board). The average GPA at a Canadian school is around a 2.5 ... An adcom. actually told me that they add a few points to Canadian GPA's to make them more competitive.On the percentage note:UWO doesn't give grades??? that seems really odd for a Canadian school. LSAC takes the letter grade on your transcript, assigns it a GPA value, and then computes your overall GPA. If you don't have letter grades, they have a conversion scale posted on their website somewhere....but i don't remember where. sorry
858585909087% = 4.12 GPAHahaha, that's funny. In psych here at U of A they take your percentage and convert it to a letter grade. For my major in psych:96-100 A+ 491-95 A 486-90 A- 3.781-85 B+ 3.3That fellow would have a stellar 3.45ish GPA here. I have a 3.8 with 6 A+'s on my transcript, and no, A+ here is not 4.3. It is just "noted on your transcript". Percentage schools in Eastern Canada are such jokes.
