Law schools love diversity. Also having a major that can actually get you a job with out law school is a good safety net. I would not take the "easiest" major in the end it might have just the same effect. Harder majors are given weight, for any lack in gpa. Study what you want do your best and then do well on the LSAT you should be fine.
No they aren't given more weight. But they also aren't given less weight.
As a Finance major from a top five school, I have experienced this first hand.
It sucks when kids who took easy majors at joke schools get more consideration because they have higher GPAs, but that's the reality of the admissions game.
That's true, but it's not like you majored in math, physics, CS, engineering, or anything really hard.
It's harder than "Liberal Arts" or "General Studies"
