Study for the LSAT, man. Any GPA difference from here on out is trivial and you don't want to take the risk of possibly lowering it. Put all the time and resources into the test that you can. Good luck.

Rumor was that some of the GPA focused schools had a hard(ish) cut off around 3.5, and since Cali schools are usually GPA focused you'd probably be better off getting your GPA over that mark if you can.

What is it, eight weeks? You can always take the December LSAT if you don't feel prepared enough, but you should have time to do both by October.

Of course, people can poke examples here and there about 3.5 UCLA students, but truth is that we don't know their circumstances and, given the numbers, they have to certainly be the exception.

I will for sure. I would just have more time to devote to studying if I didn't take the class.

Step up and do both. To the victor go the spoils. Or something like that.

Unless you're working full time, you'll have more than enough time.
