Undergraduate GPA Premium?

Undergraduate GPA Premium?
« on: July 12, 2004, 02:32:49 PM »
I was at an event, and a spokeperson from one of the top 10 LSs mentioned that applicants from the undergraduate schools with GPA deflation get a little boost in their GPA (0.1~0.2 on average) when compared to applicants from other schools (For instance, that person mentioned that Swarthmore College and the University of Chicago have harsh grading system).

Is this true?  If so, what schools are known for the harsh or easy grading system?
