Anyone know how to calculate the weighted gpa that LSU uses to determine scholarship qualifications? I see this:
"A six-semester, weighted high-school GPA. The GPA used for scholarship consideration is calculated based on the core courses required for admission to LSU. Please note this GPA may differ from the GPA listed on the high-school transcript. The GPA is weighted meaning additional weight is given to courses designated as Honors, AP, or IB."
So, would high school course staken in middle school NOT count? That would really help my son's average since he had 2 B's in 8th grade. They are on his HS transcript, but NOT in the last 6 semesters.
