LSAC GPA - UGPA Difference

Post by teddywestside » Tue Sep 18, 2018 7:46 pm

Hi everyone, new user to the forum!

I had a quick question: If your undergrad GPA and LSAC are different, is it ok to just put your UPGA on your resume? Would it not be confusing to an admissions officer? (the difference for me would be 0.01)

Thanks in advance!

Just put your GPA for a given school, as that school has determined to be. A .01 differnece is insignificant, and law schools are plenty aware that your university and LSAC GPA may, or are, going to differ. Don't sweat the difference between the two. The only thing you want to avoid doing is misrepresenting your GPA whether that be your undergrad GPA or your LSAC GPA.

If you have multiple schools in your history it's fine to just list your degree-granting institution and list that GPA on your resume. Obvious caveat that all previous education still needs to be sent to LSAC and the uGPA will reflect that. If there's just a calculating discrepancy between your single school and LSAC of .01 that's not going to cause anybody to bat an eye.
