Is a double major & minor a plus for law school admissions?

Postby georgiasouthern » Wed May 22, 2013 12:56 am

I'm currently an accounting major. Will it help me any to applying to (Duke,Cornell,Georgetown) to double major in accounting and information systems and minoring in Spanish? or will I be looked at the same as people with one major (with similar stats)? I go to an unranked national university (username) btw.

Don't agree with the accounting part... Only do major/minor if it helps your GPA - aka, just get your GPA up

Double major double minor here, it doesn't help. It probably hurts actually since it's a harder course load
