LSAC CAS

Hey, guys! I haven't registered for CAS yet. Isn't this where you get your GPA? My undergrad GPA was 3.18 and my GPA from my paralegal certificate is 3.7. Is that considered grad school? Anybody have any insight and can possibly give me a rough estimate of what my GPA would be?

    I am quite certain LSAC will only take into account your undergrad GPA, so your LSAC GPA will likely be around 3.18 (though sometimes it fluctuates slightly). Any courses you take post-first undergraduate degree do not count towards LSAC GPA.

    I got my paralegal certificate too and they factored my GPA from those courses into my LSAC GPA as well. They consider everything.

    I think it depends on if the certificate was completed before or after you finished your bachelors. If it’s after, then no they won’t include it.

    Seconding Leah's comment. Per the website, they're using college coursework (including any college courses taken in high school) from work done before your first bachelor's degree but not any school work afterwards, though they'll still consider the post-college work to be "soft" factors.
