Would you believe that I'm a philosophy/history major and never took a statistics class in my life? Hooray for random mathiness!
I'm taking a statistics class next quarter as my math requirement, having deliberately saved it for the end so as not to wreck my GPA.
Philosophy and history are two of my favorite fields.
Awesome! They're some of my favorite fields, too. Right now, I'm writing a thesis on the organization of the medieval Catholic church, a topic I will have absolutely no use for once I get to law school. But it's fun
My academic background is so f'ed up. I lived and breathed math and science throughout high school with essentially no exposure to the humanities, then threw them to the winds and took nothing more science-y or math-y than basic archaeology and formal logic in college. I mean, how many people take multivariable calculus in high school, then never take a math class again? It saved me from anything seriously GPA-wrecking, though (although I probably would have aced a low-level science or calc class freshman year--not so much now).
/Okay, the thread is no longer about me. Hi, Yale. Please admit us all.
I'm writing a history thesis too, on a topic that will have absolutely no relevance to me in law school either. It's still fun, though.
