I'm pretty sure it doesn't. All classes are created equal in the eyes of the LSAC GPA generator.

You mean like a 'B' in an AP high school class earning you as many grade points as an 'A' in a non-AP class? I wasn't aware that LSAC did anything like that. As far as I know, LSAC treats an "honors" course like any other - multiply the hours for the course times the grade, then go onto the next course.
