Does a 4.0 rather than 4.33 hurt my chances at admission?

Hello everyone. This is my first time posting and I have a question about law school admissions. I've heard that LSAC converts your GPA to a 4.33 scale, meaning that any A+ you receive counts as a 4.33 and any A counts as 4.0, etc. I currently have a 4.0 but my school doesn't give out A+s. Does this hurt my chances or will law schools treat a 4.0/4.0 student similarly to a student who has a weighted GPA higher than 4.0? Thanks in advance!

    Schools will say they take the scale into account, but I think you can safely assume that the actual raw number in relation to target medians is the more important factor. So a 4.33/4.33 would be more attractive than a 4.0/4.0.

    I feel you... my UG gave +/- grades but maxed out at regular "A"
