It's a flaw in the system, that will eventually be corrected. The problem is that many schools do not give out A+'s
So I'm confused on a couple of things:
1. I have had many people that have applied tell me that AADSAS calculates the GPA by dropping all +'s and -'s. For example a B+ would be 3.00, and an A- would be 4.0. But by looking at that document it appears that they don't do that. Does someone have any insight on that?
2. Do they take your high school transcript seriously? I sort of blew it in high school but have a very good college GPA.
Really, I didn't have a section on my AADSAS to enter in my high school GPA nor did they get a transcript from my high school.Doesn't mean anything really. Some schools just don't give out A+. D schools get your high school transcript and the AADSAS GPA and look at them both.
1. they calculate it both ways. one gpa with +'s and -'s and one without. schools will see both ways
2. some do. some don't. udm requires it.
re #1: do they show the scores the other way anywhere? (i.e. sans +/-) I've not seen one of those scores? I know AADSAS gives 2 gpa's, but i don't think one's w/o the +'s and -'s. I'm actually not sure what the 2 gpas are...
re #2: true that. i think i had to get one for ucsf, but not for too many others. they usually ask for them as part of your secondary, yea?
