If this is your problem with Teach for America, then you really really really shouldn't be doing Teach for America.

Too long??? You understand that the whole concept of a notable soft (for whatever they are worth) is to demonstrate going above and beyond at something. Teach for America is a quite short road compared to others.

Don't worry, you can spend a few years doing something interesting. Law schools will still be there when you have actually have an interesting resume, well some of them will be anyway...

P.S.

From the sound of it Teach for America would probably be better without you. Maybe you should consider enlisting for a job in the infantry.

Find a trade off between maximizing your GPA and subject matter you would be comfortable falling back on if law doesn't work out.

OP, if you want law school take the easiest classes you can. No one cares what level.

Well believe it.

Although don't believe it too much, there's some anecdotal evidence (even from posters way earlier in this thread) that have experience with less than stellar majors/schools bringing down their amazing GPAs. GPA definitely trumps major/school 10 to 1, but if your goal is HYS it's worth considering just how blatantly easy your major/school looks to adcomms. If it was me, I'd trade a 4.0 at a random community college for a 3.95 with a school adcomms will have at least heard of or in a major that people don't immediately associate with negativity.[/quote][/quote]

So you're saying YHS doesn't care about what classes you take?

+1. Do business with an emphasis in finance or accounting. This degree helps a little bit in business-related law courses and big-law hiring. I assume it would not be too hard to get As at the business schools at Emory or Michigan, but maybe someone will inform us differently. It also provides at least some chance of getting a job out of undergrad if you don't go the law route.

Ross at Michigan curves like a mofo, so a 4.33 is attainable in every class if I'm not mistaken.

Then he can go straight to Wall Street and can skip law school.

Go where you are happiest and most comfortable. Both schools have a strong cache', though UMichigan might have slightly better "lay prestige" everywhere except for in the east/southeast.

On the other hand, Emory is a prestigious private school well-known by academics and adcoms.

In addition to your choice of potential law schools - if you have developed one - take all of the above into consideration.

You were right about the lol here. However, before learning American, you should probably learn proper English. "Does schools care" is bloody awesome grammar, mate. :wink:

Looking strong right there brah.

They don't care at all, they only care about your gpa. Take whatever classes you need to get that gpa as high as you can.

Next semester take whatever classes will give you straight A's.

Pathetic little manlet - doesn't even lift or have facial aesthetics. 2/10 at best - eyes too far apart, ose too crooked. I can feel the bile coming up my throat just looking at your pictures. Don't even get me started on your hair manlet.

Don't give music majors flack for actually majoring in something we enjoy.

If you suck at your major, odds are you don't like it. Like someone above said. You can get a 4.0 in pretty much any major, as long as you enjoy it enough to put in the time.


Seriously. If you can't even read music, you have no right to say that it's easy.

That said, it's a major I should have done. Not because I think it is the easiest major in the world, because I'm actually trained in music theory and I would have enjoyed it. In the real world, it's probably as useful as my history major.
