getting into a law school

Postby Mahika123 » Sat Dec 31, 2016 7:19 pm

I am currently a sophomore with a bio/ Econ double major with my GPA around 3.5/3.6 but bio is definitely pulling my GPA down so I am debating on switching to an "lighter" major such as accounting (making me an Econ and Accounting) which will most likely allow me to improve my GPA.

Would greatly appreciate any advice on whether or not to make this switch as I don't know if the trade off of a harder subject is worth a lower GPA or what would be appreciated by law school admissions. Thank you so much for your help!

They only care about your GPA, that don't care what your major is. Generally speaking, a 3.7 in Poli Sci is way, way better to have than a 3.6 in biology.

The switch is up to you. I'd choose something you enjoy and that can also get you a job in case you decide you don't want to go to law school.
