Hey guys, I was a student at SJRCC, but moved and now I go to FSCJ. Im still hoping to apply to SJRCC. I know this is a silly question but how do u calculate your gpa? What classes do you use? I use to know how to calculate it in highschool but I totally forgot

Hello!

To calculate your gpa, you take the pre-requisites and for each letter grade, they carry a total "weight" which is:

A=4 POINTS

B=3 POINTS

C=2 POINTS

Add up the total number of points for the classes and divide that number by the number of classes and you get the total GPA.

Example: (2) A'S, (3) B'S AND (1)C= 4+4+3+3+3+2=19 19/6=3.1 GPA

Cool, got it:) Now how would u figure in a class like AP or Micro, where lab is one grade and lecture is a separate grade? Do you count that as 2 classes or 1?

If I'm not mistaken it's the same way, just different credit hours. Ex: if you take AP and your lecture grade is an A and your lab grade is a B

Lab 1.0 (credit hours) x 3.0=3.0

Lecture 3.0(credit hours) x 4.0=12.0

for a total of 15.0 points

Do they look at ur points or gpa? I have heard different people say both

Yes the application is different from the 1st time I applied. Now, they have 3 categories that you can fit into with Category 1 being the best. If you go to the SJRCC website and download a copy of the app, it will show you the criteria for each category. I fit in Category 1 which made my chances better but I am sure they will have others from the other categories that get accepted too!

Hello jkvanso!

No I haven't received any emails yet. I think St. John's is on Spring Break this week so we should receive some kind of information next week .

I know the deadline to turn in the responses is on the 23rd and the orientation is on the 30th so I am figuring we will get an email some time between then!

I didn't mail my letter until this weekend. I wasn't sure if others mailed theirs in and got the "email" that we're going to get!

I know we have to have CPR. Has anyone signed up for this yet? Im curious as to the best/cheapest place to go! Any ideas?

Also, I have a girlfriend that started in January and her advice was to get some sleep now!
