Signing up for 2L classes right now . . . I'm trying to boost my GPA next semester, but I don't want to put off all of my hard classes. So I'm going to take one of the following:
I know those are all hard, but which is the easiest? Alternatively, which is the most helpful to take now?
Also, for corporate transactional-type work, how helpful is a class in Sales/UCC Article 2? What about other UCC-based classes, like Commercial Paper or Secured Transactions?
They're all curved. So try to avoid thinking about 'hard' and 'easy'. More accurate would be 'competitive' (Fed courts, and to a lesser extent admin) or 'difficult' (word on the street is that to one degree or another all of those courses are a little tougher than average to 'get').
A difficult course to a good student can be an opportunity, because it's easier to stand out. Many on this board have opined that 'easy' courses are 'hard' for good students because the exam scores can be condensed.
I'm a 1L too, so I can't give you specifics, but I think the above framework is a good way to approach it. It might all be different at your school than at others, too. I'm sure that fed courts is more competitive at schools where a substantial number of people in the class are gunning for a tough CoA clerkship spot.
