Dalhousie GPA - what's required/how to calculate it?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! Would somebody walk me through how to calculate the GPA that Dalhousie looks at? They look at the 4.3 scale, correct? Do they look at your two most recent years, your entire GPA on average, drop the worst 10% of classes, etc.? Do they count spring/summer courses? I was misled in thinking that every school calculated entry like the U of A. My goal is to calculate my GPA properly, combine it with my LSAT, and then ask you guys what my chances are of getting in. If I have no chance, I don't want to force my references to go through a ton of extra work. 

 

Thanks in advance!

Correct. Ten points to Slytherin. 

 

Do they look at your two most recent years, your entire GPA on average, drop the worst 10% of classes, etc.?

They look at either your cGPA or last two years (which they define as the last ten credits you've taken). They take whichever is higher. 

 

Do they count spring/summer courses?

Yes? No? I don't know. I didn't have any.1 

 

1Most of my knowledge (or lack thereof) comes from secret online sources. I will share one with you. Don't tell the others: https://www.dal.ca/faculty/law/programs/jd-admissions/admission-requirements.html

I think maybe I should get 10 points to Hufflepuff because I definitely looked at that pages and the fact sheet and COMPLETELY missed the little section outlining exactly what you said.  You deserve the Slytherin points for your spot on sarcasm that I totally deserved. XD

 

Thank you so much for your help! I'll scurry off and make a "chances" thread now. ^_^

    • I went to CIBC, Scotia, and TD. 

      Scotia offered - $125K at prime
      - Offered a credit card with $10K limit (waived the annual fee) TD offered - $100K at prime CIBC offered - $100K at prime +1.

      They all are pretty much 5 - 10 minute application forms I sat with a representative at each bank and the process is nearly identical at all three. The reps mentioned you do not need a co-signer unless you have some credit red flags, which would then require a guarantor (not a co-signer). I did not discuss repayment terms. 

      Prime is currently at 3.45%. 
       
    • How was your exam?
    • Graduation, course, discretionary etc.
    • Thanks everyone!

      Follow-up question: Is it standard for the student line of credit to convert to a normal line of credit with a higher interest rate (e.g. prime + 3%) 12 months after graduation? 
    • I have an 8 yr old macbook pro and its a great computer despite its age.  One day it just shut off mid use and wouldn't turn on again.  Managed to get the issue fixed, but thankfully I also have a chromebook and all my work saved in cloud storage or I would have been screwed for about a week.
