Why is my LSDAS G.P.A. different than my St. Bonaventure G.P.A.?
Remember, this service is mainly for the law schools. They want one source, and only one source, providing a GPA. Your college GPA is also reported as it appears on your transcripts, but the LSDAS GPA is considered somewhat more accurate because it incorporates all of the grades you received at all of the colleges you attended (including community colleges) into one score, and it uses the same formula for everyone. There is basically nothing you can do to get out of this system or change their mind about your GPA. You can appeal if you feel the calculation was inaccurate, but appeals are rarely successful. If you think your GPA as reported by the LSDAS is too low, you can include an explanation in your application materials.
