How should I enter my major into LSAC?

Postby StupidQuestions » Sun Aug 01, 2010 2:41 am

I'm an Engineering Physics major with a focus in EE. This means that I took 3/4 of what you need for an EE degree, but the other 1/4 was the core stuff you need for a Physics degree. In order to reduce the stakes even further, know that my GPA was super low, I have solid WE, and my LORs are from my WE.

I can see two ways to enter my major into LSAC:

Natural Sciences, Physics, Specialization

or

Engineering, Engineering - Other

Which would you pick? And how much does it matter? Zero? Less than zero? Are you now dumber because you read this post?

IIRC, it won't really matter, because on MOST applications, it gives you a spot for you to physically write in your major, and you can write Engineering Physics or what have you.

Edit: for purposes of LSAC, do Engineering - other. It's closest to your degree.
