Western Gpa Converted To Us Schools


Recommended Posts

Can someone please confirm this for me. I am currently working on my second undergrad at Western. Cumulative average is somewhere around 70% or 2.7 GPA.


I can definitely raise my GPA to a 80% average over the next three years. 


My question is, does a 80% average at Western automatically convert to a 4.0 gpa when applying to US med schools?

That's not how a GPA conversion works. You need to convert each individual course grade to a 4.0 scale and then average out all of those values. For example, if your 80% average is made up of one 65% and one 95%, then those would convert to a 1.0 and 4.0, and the average of those would then be a 2.5 GPA.


Look at the bottom of the last page for the conversions:
