in a recent post here or in the osteo forum, i saw some discussion about the gpa scale that aacomas uses in your gpa calculation... the school I attend has the following grading scale (that I have always assumed everyone else uses): A 4.0; A- 3.7; B+ 3.3; B 3.0; C- 2.7... you get the idea... Does aacomas use this same scale?
thanks.

Yes, AACOMAS uses the same scale. And if your school is on a quarter system, you have to convert your quarter hours to semester hours.

hi, i'm thinking of applying from a Canadian university that uses alpha grading (with just +, no -) on a 9.0 scale (i know, its weird!):
A+ 9.0
A 8.0
B+ 7.0
B 6.0...ETC.

under the AACOMAS scale, do i just convert my letter grades to their letter grades - so A+/A is given a 4.0 value, B+ is 3.3, B is 3.0, etc.? i just need some clarification so i have a better idea of my AACOMAS GPA!
thanks
