In need of some help . . . ?

Postby cj_stripe » Wed Nov 30, 2011 11:37 am

I am currently a freshman at Iowa State University studying Aerospace Engineering. Our finals are coming up next week and my grades are looking like they wil post up a 3.4 maybe 3.5 GPA for the semester? Is that bad for an engineering major? . . . Also, I would like to try to plan to go to Law School after my undergrad, but I am really confused as to what to do right now. I find engineering difficult and very time consuming but it is interesting, but not my "passion" by any means. I just don't see myself as an engineer in the future. I wanted to ask, what do Law Schools look for in applicants? Being in engineering, would I still need to have a 3.6-3.8 college GPA? Do they look more at ECs (extra-circs) too?

Also, what do Law Schools think about being involved in student government? I ask because I am planning on running for election of a Senate seat on our Student Government this year.

Thank you for the help and comments!

Double dipping?

Anyway, TCR is that only GPA and LSAT matter. Student gov't and engineering are good softs, but if either weigh down your GPA then that's putting you at a huge disadvantage.
