Can anyone tell me how to calculate the UM GPA. I have around a 3.85 UW GPA and a 4.9 W GPA.

    Use your sophomore grades and junior grades only and calculate GPA using

    4= A, A-, A+
    3= B,B-,B+
    2= C, C-,C+

    Also take out any non-academic classes like PE, health, band, choir, shop class, etc.

    If you mean average LSA gpa, which you probably do, it's somewhere between a 3.1 and 3.2.
  • subroutinesubroutine Posts: 171Registered User Junior Member
    For the record, the UM in "UM GPA" stands for University of Michigan.

    ^That gpa is for students currently attending the University of Michigan, isn't it?

    The gpa for accepted applicants coming out of high school is usually much higher.
  • giants92giants92 Posts: 1,338Registered User Senior Member
    Yes, sorry. That 3.1-3.2 is the about the average gpa of students currently attending Michigan. Not of high school applicants.

    I believe it's 3.3.?
  • giants92giants92 Posts: 1,338Registered User Senior Member
    No way in hell is the average UM GPA 3.3. That would mean the average grade given ou is B+ which just isn't what happens. Its definitely in the 3.1/3.2 range.

    when they take out non-academic classes to recalculate your gpa, does that include any foreign languages?
  • dococtopidococtopi Posts: 248Registered User Junior Member
    I don't think so, foreign languages are generally considered academic and rigorous.
  • subroutinesubroutine Posts: 171Registered User Junior Member
    Foreign language, math, sciences, social sciences, computer science, and English are the things they don't take out.
  • HARRRRHARRRR Posts: 335Registered User Member
    Foreign languages are counted.
