Gpa rounding rules??

Recommended Posts

Hey! 
 

does anyone know how u of a rounds gpa? I’m trying to manage my expectations by calculating the index, but I’m not sure how many decimals they go to or if they round up?

 

for context, I have a 3.985 with a rough lsat so every decimal point counts lol! Would they round to 3.9 or 4.0 or stick with 3.985?

thanks in advance!!

@barry2269 which index formula are you using? I wouldn’t mind doing my own calculations!

I’ve been using gpa x 22 + lsat that I found in a previous thread! I’ve been calculating the index of those already accepted to see how much it has to drop before I’m in lol desperate times 😂

Most likely they will use L2 GPA x 22.5 + LSAT average.😂

This gem of a post has it all! Index formulae are at the bottom.

Caveat: Not official - the formula was developed by previous applicants based on the UofA’s annually-published applicant profile. People way smarter than me have predicted that they’re using the 22.5/242 formula, but nobody really knows.

My GPA is 3.99/4, would that get rounded to 4.0 or stay as 3.99. The reason I ask is because with a 3.99 my index score is 242.775, which slight puts me above that 242 for automatic acceptance. Whereas, 4.0 puts me at 243. Not sure if it makes any difference, but curious to know.

If it is 3.995 then 4.0.

    • "cGPA: 3.29 L2: 3.5 LSAT: 159 (2 writes)" @strugglingSFUgal In your shoes I would accept at UofC now. Based on your profile, even with some improvements admission at UVic is far from guaranteed next year (as you yourself acknowledge).
    • what are your stats? 
    • Hi Everyone! I am in my 5th year of uni and I've been accepted to U of C for 2020 and honestly, given my stats, I wasn't expecting any acceptances (especially this early) and had already started studying for my LSAT again to be more competitive for next cycle. I am super excited about this acceptance, but I'm a little stuck on what to doooo. My ultimate goal is UVic, but I didn't apply this cycle as my stats weren't competitive. However, if I was to apply next year, with the increase in credit drops after this semester, my GPA would be competitive and I would just have to work at getting a couple points higher on the LSAT (obviously, working to get a higher LSAT is never a guarantee). As a BC resident, I'd eventually like to make my way back here, although I'm okay living somewhere else for a couple years before that. My question is, do you think I should take the acceptance with U of C and say bye-bye to the LSAT, or should I decline U of C, try for a higher LSAT, and gun for UVic?  Any advice is appreciated  
    • I submitted the day of the deadline (Jan 15th) and got accepted today, so just over a month later. So to answer your question, no - it doesn't seem that they go by order submitted. I know some other strong applicants who have not heard back having applied earlier. 
    • I got in very quickly with a lower GPA, mine was 3.37. However, I did have a somewhat high LSAT at 170.
