Taking easy electives at community college in the summer?

Postby crazi4law » Tue May 08, 2012 6:24 am

I plan on studying for the LSAT this summer and taking it in the fall. Assuming I do well, would taking easy elective courses at a community college next summer be a good strategy to boost my GPA? I'm currently at a 4-year university with a solid GPA but I feel that a few more easy A's can't hurt.

As long as the classes are taken before you receive your degree, then yeah that's fine

Does your school not have a residency requirement? I know my undergrad required that your last 30 credits before you graduate be completed through the school.

Any history, math, lab science not comp sci, or sociology should be free GPA points.

If you can, attend a CC that has A+ as a possible grade. That 4.33 will help correct any "issues" you have on your transcript.
