The CREDENTIAL ASSEMBLY SERVICE (CAS), previously Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS). is available through the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) as a means of centralizing and standardizing your undergraduate academic records to simplify the law school admission process. Additional information about CAS is available from the Washburn School of Law.
The GPA determined by LSDAS may differ from the GPA determined by your college. This is because the policy of LSDAS and a college may differ on what courses to exclude from the calculation of the GPA and they may differ on w many grade points to award for a letter grade (for example, LSDAS awards 3.33 grade points for each credit of B+ whereas some colleges award 3.5 grade points for each credit of B+). . Note that if you attend a college which awards the grade A+, you UGPA could be as high as 4.33; if you do not attend a college that awards the grade A+, your UGPA could be only as high as 4.00. Is this fair? The answer is obvious but LSDAS does nothing about this inequality.
