Nope.

ETA: you don't get to pick which GPA gets to be your LSAC GPA...the whole point of the LSAC GPA is that everyone gets a GPA that is calculated in a uniform way.

Plus, Graduate GPAs are notoriously inflated so most people get much better grad GPAs than UG.

Having a masters makes for an average soft, but will have no effect on your GPA.

UG GPA and LSAT score is "hard," everything else (letters of rec, resume, extracurriculars, community service, grad GPA, PhD, etc.) is "soft." And yes there is an abbreviation/acronym/jargon list in this forum, a sticky towards the top. It helps.
