Definitely agree with this, but if you're set on a minor choose philosophy. Not only does taking logic make the logic games a lot more intuitive, but logical reasoning is a breeeeze if you end up being good at philosophy.


Most definitely - Law Schools will care very little if you have a minor (or which minor you have). If anything, you should take classes that give you the highest possible GPA.

Edit: Clarity.

You see, this is exactly what I'm talking about. :roll:
