Does LSDAS weight GPA to ugrad?

Is the prestige/difficulty of your undergrad (or lack thereof) taken into account when LSDAS calculates/converts your GPA?

No. Your grades will be your grades, no matter from whence they came.

Yes, they adjust your GPA upward if you went to a prestigious private university and adjust it downward for rampant grade inflation at your university, making it exactly the same as before this adjustment.
