So over the course of learning the various in-and-outs of the whole LS process the most shocking revelation has to be the fact that LSAC converts A+'s to 4.33. Personally, this pisses me off. Seriously. Apparently a 98-100 at certain schools is considered an A+, but my school (along with many of my friends') doesn't give out A+'s. Not to be conceited, but many classes I found myself in the 98-100 bracket. So, essentially, LSAC is giving a substantial advantage to students at schools who give out A+'s. I understand that UG GPA is not regarded as fair or equal, and the LSAT is supposedly an equalizer (i.e. puts everyone on an even playing field), but seeing people with a 4.22 GPA while knowing my GPA would be substantially higher if A+ís were given out at my school really irks me. So, I guess what Iím saying is that Iím a bitter s.o.b. and I am wondering if you think giving an advantage to a select number of students is fair to the admissions process (now that I think about it, not much with this process is fair: AA, a standardized test w/ tons of admission weight heavily favoring philosophy majors, law schools favoring Ivey League schools even though many (I realize not all) are renowned for grade inflation).
*This is merely my opinion in an open-ended question format. I am NOT planning on writing an addendum about this (that would do nothing but falsely portray me as having a whinny disposition).
