    On the application, when you are putting in your transcript grades, do you also input what the AACOMAS grade would be?

    My school's only give A, B, C, D, F with no + or - sign...

    Just want to make sure I have it right before I submit...thanks for any help.

    The thing that is confusing me is that it's "required" that you put in the AACOMAS grade, so I'm just going on the assumption that it is the letter grade on my transcript.

    definitley speak with aacomas first! i just reviewed the instructions for the coursework section and letter grades are assigned numeric values to check your gpa. a B+ would definitley get higher points than a B, and a B will be higher than a B-. since your school does not have +'s or -'s, i think aacomas should adjust the gpa calculations accordingly. i just wouldnt want u to have a lower gpa than what u should have :) good luck!

    Kinda sucks, because if I'm reading it correctly, if they had the %'s that you obtained, it might give you an AACOMAS + or - rather than a straight letter grade. As it is, I just have straight letter grades and got a lot of "B's" that probably would have been "+'s".

    Oh well.

    I'm getting it ready and will call them. Wanted to have this submitted a long time ago. :oops:
