Why is my GPA on my LSDAS Law School Report lower than the GPA on my college transcript?
For purposes of the Law School Report, your GPA is converted by the LSDAS to a uniform scale. In many cases this conversion lowers your GPA from what is reflected on your transcript. The disparity often occurs in cases where applicants repeated courses due to low initial grades. All grades received in a course are calculated for purposes of the Law School Report, even if your college only calculated the highest grade. The disparity could be caused by other reasons as well.Ā You can obtain further information about the LSDAS at 215.968.1001.
