Pass No credit

Postby Aspiringlawyer3 » Mon Jul 18, 2011 7:30 pm

Hi everyone,

I am currently a senior in college majoring in economics. I am taking a summer class and I have a dilemma about whether or not I should pass/no credit a class. The class is a reading class (mostly reading classic novels i.e. Shakespeare). Will having only one pass/no credit grade on my transcript have a severe impact on my application when I apply to law school. I currently have a 3.9 UGPA (4.03 LSAC GPA) and I want to attend NYU Law School. This class is not required for my major but rather used to fulfill a reading requirement imposed by my school. Any advice will be helpful. Thanks.

No, it will absolutely not hurt you to take it P/NP.

Awesome, I had this question too, since one of my internships is Pass/Fail, as were a few classes at my old UG. Thanks ^^
