Is advanced logic really THAT difficult to do well in? 

Also, how much reading per week goes along with majoring in Philosophy?  Can you compare it to other majors such as Political Science and History.

How much more difficult are upper year logic courses than intro to logic?  Will they provide you with anything that intro to logic won't that will be a significant benefit for the LSAT?

In addition to the statistics question that was already asked earlier, I was wondering why you suggest taking calculas courses?  It's widely accepted, and even admitted by numerous math teachers, that calculas is useless.  So I was wondering how it would be beneficial a calculas course, let alone two?

The most unique major I can think of is botany (the study of plants for those of you who don't know).

Btw, business sounds like a good idea.

How hard did you guys find it in terms of getting good grades at your school, especially those of you who attended the "best" school you got into? 

Was it difficult competing against the "top" students there?

I was also wondering about your choice of academic institutions.  By that I mean did you go to the "best" (most well regarded and well respected) school that you could get into, or did you go to a slightly lesser school in an effort to play the bell curve and get slightly higher marks for admission to law or another grad school?

Once again, thanks everyone for your replies.

To clarify a few things:

I have most certainly considered doing a double major in the areas already mentioned, as it makes perfect sense to combine my areas of interest.

I've also done a fair bit of research on the undergrad schools I'm considering attending.

At the time being I am in fact leaning towards political science as I'm prob the most interested in it.

I also realize that economics provides the "best" background for my interests, in that it obviously is a field that pertains to business.  However, I have heard numerous things about the level of difficulty to get good marks in these programs, and this is especially the case at the schools I'm considering.

And I'm not really considering business because it would require me to take math in grade 12 and although I would do "well" in comparison to most people as I'm an all around strong student in every subject, it would not be up to par for my other grades in other classes.  Also, the business programs at the schools in my area, and more specifically the schools I'm considering, are widely known as the best in the country and admitt only the top student (not to say I would not be admitted, but just that it would be far more difficult to do as well in university as a direct result of the infa mous bell-curve).

Could anyone offer advice as to what is stereotypically viewed as the "easiest" of these courses to get good marks in.  By that I mean which course do students typically receive the highest grades of these three.  Also feel free to offer the courses that give out the highest marks in all of the undergrad studies in university.

This will not affect my decision, but I'm simply curious.  Thanks.

Thanks for your response Lenny. 

To clarify, I'm interested in securities, competition and anti-trust and megers and aquisitions.

If you have any suggestions on courses or routes that would be good prep for these areas please share them with me.
