Okay, I skimmed the first two pages, and it's not as bad as I thought it would be. I don't think it's that illogical to wonder if a 3.3 from Harvard will fare better than a 3.5 from the University of Phoenix.
Unfortunately for you, OP, law schools are numbers whores, and the consensus is that your GPA will generally only help you on the margins (e.g., toss up between two candidates).
That said, crying about Harvard GPA inflation or implying that it's easier to make good grades at Harvard is a little absurd. H attracts students of a slightly different caliber than does the University of Phoenix.
It's not that it's easier to pull a high GPA at Harvard. It's that getting less than a B at HYP takes real effort. Think of it as institutionalized downside protection. (And no one said anything about UofP.)
