Maybe one of the profs who are on here can give their thoughts on what they think when they see an LOR like this. But I don't think anyone can say something like "it will be like your GPA raised by X points!" Also, while it's one thing to convince the committee that your GPA doesn't reflect your ability, it's another thing to convince them that your GPA should actually be X instead. I would guess that in the best case scenario, it would convince the committee to put more weight on other parts of your application. So, while the contents of the LOR and GPA are probably out of your control, you should do your best to show that the other parts of your application are the best it can be, to further strengthen your LOR's argument that your abilities are greater than your GPA!
