LSAC GPA confusion
I'm confused about my LSAC GPA. My college GPA is higher because I have many B+'s but my LSAC GPA is significantly lower. Should I contact LSAC and address my concern? Or is the GPA scale different? (If so, could you please explain it to me) Thanks!
The LSAC converts all college grades to its own scale and creates its own version of your GPA. This chart shows how they convert your grades into their own system:
- Academic Record
- Applying to Law School
This page describes which grades the LSAC includes and excludes in their transcript summary:
In short, there is likely a reason your LSAC GPA differs from the one issued by your college, and contacting the LSAC with your concerns will not change things. Don't worry too much, though, because law school admissions committees are used to interpreting any differences that may arise.
