Also, I have heard people say that the difference between 2.9 and 3.0 is far greater than the difference between 3.0 & 3.1 due to schools wanting a 3 in front of your gpa

Once you're below the 25th percentile, your actual GPA doesn't matter to an extent. Schools like HYS often have GPA floors that you simply can't fall beneath, even if you have a great LSAT. And even in less GPA-conscious schools, a sub-3.0 GPA can be a serious issue. So while you might see very little difference in results between applicants with a 3.0x and a 3.1x, you will likely see a significant difference between applicants with a 2.x and a 3.0x.

If you're very close to a 3.0, and you haven't received your (first) Bachelor's degree yet, it may make sense to consider taking additional classes to get above a 3.0 before graduating. Keep in mind: For LSAC GPA calculation purposes (the only GPA law schools care about), it doesn't matter where you earn a grade (whether it's at your degree-granting university or, say, a local community college), it doesn't matter what classes you take (you don't get any special credit for "tougher" STEM classes, or "tougher" junior/senior-level classes as opposed to intro or "non-major" classes), it doesn't matter whether a class counts toward your degree, and any grades you earn after receiving your first Bachelor's degree don't count. Once you receive that first Bachelor's degree, your LSAC GPA is locked in stone and cannot be changed.
