Taking minimum credits

Postby FiveSermon » Mon Jan 17, 2011 7:47 pm

I was thinking about taking 12 credits this semester...I also took 12 credits last semester. Would this look bad since I'm taking the minimum credits for a full time student?

No, I took 12 credits every semester, but I finished in four years (I did lots of AP and comm college classes in HS). My cycle is going as expected, if not better than expected. No worries.

Why would a law school would care if you took 12 credits rather than 15 in a semester/two ?

no they will not care whether you took 12 hrs for a few semesters or not
