Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anyone knows if Law Schools look at the amount of credits you take per a semester. I would really like to drop down to the minimum amount of credits because I'm taking an LSAT class but am scared it will look like I got lazy. Does anyone know if it matters? Thank you!

I don't think the number of credits you take matters. I took between 12-18, with the majority between 12-15. I fared fine.

I went part-time for two quarters of my senior year. Didn't explain it, didn't seem to make any difference.

TCR is no, it does not matter.
