I'm a political science and data science double major and need to choose which should headline my degree--BA or BS. I know that an individual major has little impact on admissions, but would one of these be slightly preferable over the other? Or is it also negligible? Thanks!

Won't matter for law school. I'd headline with the BS for almost everything else, though, since data science is an in-demand skillset and political science isn't.

Agree with the above. Might as well have the most marketable major as the headline. Every other law school applicant is a poli sci major, so data science will actually make you stand out in a good way. Not so much for admissions, but for job applications.
