Its called a "cumulative GPA" and yes the LSDAS requires to be from ALL undergrad schools(even if you only took one credit and bombed it with an F from a school) Failure to report them all is an honor code violation, and can get you kicked out, and not allowed to sit the bar or gradute.

I am not trying to hide it , just the opposite , i will be really glad if they consider my college diploma cuz i have really good grades, but i was wondering if it will effect my total GPA? it was from a private college .thanks

Glad to have helped. Most info like this can be found at http://www.lsac.org just so you know. That ways its from the "horses mouth" directly and not just people rehashing their old expereinces.
