I'm never quite sure if I understand all of this, but this is from the LSDAS registration guide:

wow.  thanks for the responses, but i am completely bamboozled by that wacky conversion chart.  i thought the lsat was hard...if you want to go to law school, they should give you 35 minutes to accurately convert your actual gpa to the ldas gpa.
