Class averages on undergrad transcripts

TLS seems to emphasize that class difficulty won't be considered much in LS admissions, but my undergrad institution's transcripts include class averages for each class I took (and class size). I don't know if other schools have this, but it seems that a class average on a transcript would draw attention to the difficulty of the courses I took during undergrad and allow the difficulty of the courses to be properly estimated. With these things considered, would it be bad if I took many easy courses to boost my GPA?

Your cumulative LSAC GPA is going to be the most important thing. Don't just load up on 101 courses, but it's pretty much taken for granted that you'll avoid classes with tough curves if you're planning on law school.

Feel free to pad your stats anyways. I took many classes in undergrad that were easily identified as blowoffs, and actually did a whole semester of that to close out undergrad. Literally took nothing but TAing for credit and graded sports classes like darts, basketball, rowing, etc. Was accepted into multiple T14s that were perfectly in line with my stats (and even a reach T6 acceptance).
