outside classes to raise gpa

Postby wildcats2008 » Wed Apr 14, 2010 9:31 pm

So, I've looked through many threads and have seen that many people take cc classes during summers or online in order to boost their lsdas gpa.
My question is if I did the same thing but at a big 10 university, would it still be viewed as blatant gpa padding or does it depend upon what
courses you take? Right now, I am planning to take Social Psychology and E-Commerce over the summer at Purdue University. In the past, I have
taken Intro to Sociology, Microecon, Macroecon, Gen Chem, and Physics E&M. Would law schools view this negatively and downgrade me or ignore
my Purdue courses. I currently attend a prestigious university in the Midwest so would Purdue courses be considered too different to count? All of the courses
that I have already taken satisfied various distribution and science requirements for my major. Only the classes I take this summer would not fulfill any requirements.
Thanks for all the help!

This is a numbers game. Unless you are already at an Ivy.

Which is meant to say, pad your GPA and move on.
