Dear friends,

I have an WU and an F on my transcript, but I already retook all of them and received A for both classes. When AADSAS calculate my GPA, are they going to count my WU & F into my overall gpa or count the two A instead? thank you very much!

I would bet it counts the F and two As but won't count the W (assuming a WU stands for withdrawal from course). When you fill out the app it makes you specify classes that you repeated. So I had two Ws on my transcript and both retakes I got As in, and labeled those classes as repeats. Neither W was counted as a letter grade and did not affect my GPA.

They will count the F and the A together making u average out to a B.

WU will not be counted. So the A is an A.

if they mix the F with my other grades, it will significantly lower my gpa. Will dental schools view my gpa from school transcript or the gpa calculated by AADSAS

They'll look at the GPA calculated by AADSAS.

It would average to a C.

4 x 0 points for an F = 0 Quality Points
4 credit class x 4 points for an A = 16 Quality points

Quality Points Summed divided by Total Attempted Credits = 16/8 = 2.0 which is a C.

AADSAS is strict. They don't do grade forgiveness like MD or DO.

Make sure to explain why you got your F in the addendum!

My mistake, yes it averaged to a C
