Question about LSAC/LSDAS factoring GPA

<p>In Anna Ivey's book it discusses how the workload you took throughout your semesters is factored into the way they calculate your GPA. I've had a whole lot of credit from before, and have the remainder of my classes planned out for my undergrad; none of my semesters will require a typical course load (15 hours). Will this work against me when computing my GPA, and if so, how much?</p>

<p>No, those books are rather BS, in my opinion.</p>

<p>Law schools dont really consider undergrad school, major, number of classes, difficulty of classes, etc. </p>

<p>I have several friends who are gong to Yale, Stanford, Penn, and Cornell who managed to maintain 4.0 GPAs while never making it on the dean's list (the dean's list at berkeley is for the top 4% of undergrad GPAs, usually around 3.93). The reason they never made it on the deans list is b/c they never took took the minimum number of units (13/semester) on a letter grade basis. </p>

<p>Law schools, for the msot part, only look at numbers and your unit courseload is rather irrelevant to ad coms</p>
