College or University

I am going to be receiving my AA degree after this semester at a local state college. I have a 3.6 gpa and I am a member of an honors club. The state college I currently attend also offers bachelor degrees. I was wondering if I stayed at this college to complete a bachelor's degree, would it not look good to law schools?

I don't think it's going to matter as long as this place is accredited. Your GPA and LSAT will trump all.

You should be fine, then. Schools claim to factor in the difficulty of the coursework at your undergrad institution, but in reality they are slaves to the USNWR rankings which are calculated solely out of your GPA/LSAT score.

Ok I see, I might just finish my bachelor's degree at the college I attend right now since it is cheap with pretty good professors. Thank you for the reply.
