Law School Look at Degree GPA or Cumulative GPA?

So on the LSAC report my Cumulative GPA is higher than Degree GPA, because I transferred from one college to another after my Sophomore year. Any idea which one the law school admissions will look at? Thanks!

    They'll look at your LSAC GPA which is a number that they generate themselves. They do this because different schools calculate GPA a little differently, and there really needs to be a standard that everyone is following. Your LSAC GPA will be based on your CGPA though, so that is the one you want to look at. To get a good idea of what your LSAC GPA is likely to be, you can use this calculator to generate an estimate:
