Alrighty...fun time. Question

Postby HarvardHopeful93 » Fri Apr 05, 2013 10:36 pm

Well guys, in light of my earlier topic I have a question. I also think I know what you're going to say. I'm a POLY SCI major and after next semester I'll only have 6 credits left for Poly Sci (that's 2 classes at my school). Yet I'll only have around 75/122 needed to graduate...does this mean I can just take a shitload of easy electives at this point? It'd be easy to ace them all and get out of here with a 3.8+ GPA. Will top law schools care that my entire senior year and second half of junior year was "stat padding", so to speak, with easy non-major classes? I figure the lessened load will also make it easier to study for LSAT senior year too.

So...is it fun time?

Enjoy your basket-weaving courses. Law schools only care about your GPA.

Are you not factoring in the almost always required gen-ed classes? People could easily fulfill just degree requirements in a year, it's often the required math,sci,etc classes that hurt GPAs.
