How to Use The Law school GPA Calculator
Most schools only use one grading system, while some use the percentage system.
So to calculate your law school GPA, you will probably only use the grading instead of the percentage%. Take the 3 simple steps below to calculator your CAS / LSAC GPA :
1. Select Your Grade
To start calculating your LSAC/CAS GPA, first select the grades or Percentages of all the classes you’ve passed through in each of your school semesters.
Grades can range from an A+ to an F. For each course, choose a letter grade from the drop-down menu.
2. Input Your Credits hour
Then you can input the credit hour for each of the same classes. For example, if you have earned an A+ for a 4-credit hour course, then Input 4 in the box next to the GRADE.
if you have more than four courses each semester, Just Click the Add Class button and add more courses.
Since we are calculating the LSAC/CAS GPA, you need to calculate all your school semesters in other to get the accurate CAS law school GPA.
To do this, click the +Add semester button to add another semester. And repeat the above steps for each semester you are calculating.
3. See the Result of Your LSAC/CAS GPA
After selecting your grade and inputting your credit hours for each of your semesters, you would see your Semester GPA and the ESTIMATED CAS GPA Updating.

How To Calculate your CAS GPA
To calculate your CAS GPA for law school admission, you need to calculate all your semester GPAs separately by clicking on the +Add Semester button. And repeat the whole process again.
The semester GPA would keep updating at the bottom as you keep adding your grade and Credit Unit, while the CAS GPA will keep updating on the EST. CAS GPA box.
Updating your GPA throughout the year will enable you to see if you are eligible for law school admission or not.
Do Law Schools Look at Transcripts
The simple answer to this is yes because law schools are interested in the grades on a candidate’s transcript because undergraduate grades are a reliable measure of academic performance in law school.
