Question about extracurriculars

Postby jdog0816 » Tue Oct 30, 2012 4:45 pm

I am looking to apply to law school, but I think my extracurriculars are a little weak. I am only in College Democrats.

However, I am triple majoring with a minor, so I'm pretty busy during the week. Would the law school admissions boards understand this and not expect me to have many extracurriculars? I'm only a sophomore, so there's plenty of time to get another activity if I need one.

How important are extracurriculars? And specifically, how important are extracurriculars when I'm triple majoring?

Thanks!

Zero importance. Study for the LSAT and don't waste time doing stupid college clubs.
