Your degree GPA will not be emphasized. Your LSAC GPA is what matters.

That said, do you know what your rank was in the business school or what the median GPA was? Does any of this info show up on your school report? If the curve was absolutely brutal (as in the median GPA was in the 2.XX range), then it might be worthwhile to write a 1-2 sentence addendum explaining that. But doing so is not necessary. If the curve meant you were around an average (or below average) student in the major, then there is no reason to write an addendum highlighting that point
