No way to indicate double major on law school apps?

Postby heyhowdyhey » Mon Oct 03, 2011 11:09 pm

Am I just stupid, or can you only select one major in the education section? As an example, I'm looking at USC's app right now. Once you select a major, there's no category to "add a major" or anything like that.

Should I just not select a major at all, since it's not listed as required and my majors are on my transcript anyway?

Oh and another thing... When it asks for GPA, can I put my LSDAS GPA as opposed to my actual college GPA? (Since my LSDAS GPA is higher).

In my applications there was always a freeform field, but in many applications it was really short. I'd just pick whichever one you think looks best to adcoms. If you have an "other" option you could use that... either way they'll figure it out quickly enough.

You might call the admissions office at USC; either they'll have some advice for you or they'll appreciate the feedback on improving their form.
