I am currently taking Chinese and am not doing very well in it (taking Chinese at 15 other hours wasn't a bright idea). Do law schools care about the difficulty of the foreign language that someone takes? If a student makes poor grades in a foreign language class, but otherwise has good grades, would top law schools care?

This doesn't even need to be true, even if the entire population who had the misfortune of choosing the major you chose were in the gutter in the academic sense, there are still more pol-sci or philosophy majors or w/e with 4.0 GPAs, and you will be competing against those.
