Seriously, not one law school will care.

The only thing that matters is your GPA.

Plus, if you have a "hard" undergrad like engineering or hard science.

That is all.

those majors sound very interconnected to me.....


how is an international relations major unrelated to an EAS minor?? Those are like as close as you can get

If my school had let me, I would have been a Japanese major with Astronomy and Economics minors, but it doesn't allow for two minors, so I'm just a JP major with an Economics minor.

I don't think they would care. Maybe it even shows your 'wide range of intellectual interests' or something? If you've done well in all fields, it shows you can do anything. :D

Sounds like a great major combo. Especially if you want to do work in East Asian transactional law or something of that sort. It would make a great personal statement.
