Hello, I was wondering if I could get some help on the gpa conversion thing. I graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle. Having read some of the threads on the topic of gpa conversion for the amcas application, I realize that UW's numerical grading system (4.0, 3.0 etc...) is very different from most other schools that use the letter grade system (A, B etc...). I read a thread a few days ago that even though UW gives out numerical grades, I STILL have to convert them to the amcas grades (if I got 3.8 from the UW, I have to convert that to 3.7 when I fill out the amcas application). Is this true? If I don't "convert" on the application and just enter the grade I have on my transcript (eg, I enter 3.8 instead of 3.7), would I be creating more problems for myself?
