Thanks all I sent in the application itself around the beginning of September, but it wasn't complete until the beginning of October when my second reference sent in my letter. My L2 is ~3.83 (haven't done the math recently) with two writes for the LSAT: first was 162, second was 160 (Flex can bite me). I'm also a born and raised Haligonian, so my maritime connection is pretty strong.
Hi, I think the safest way to do it is to convert your grades onto the 4.3 scale, then calculate the average that way because for me, this conversion does not convert my cGPA from 4-4.3 correctly.
Right now, my cGPA is 3.61 but 3.77/4.3 scale but L2 is 3.83/4 which miraculously is 4.15/4.3 scale. I think it's because each grade isn't necessary 1.075 apart when switched to 4.3 scale. For example:
(A+) 4.3/4 = 1.075
(A) 4/3.9 = 1.025
(A-) 3.7/3.7 = 1
(B+) 3.3/3.3 = 1
It's made this way to credit upper grades (A+ and As) more. I have a perfect A+ across my third year which is why my L2 is significantly more than my cGPA.
