hmm I hadn't thought of that. However, I want to ultimately go into law academia, not a firm...ughh I don't know what I should do.

Law School Admissions / Do second semester grades matter?

...if you're applying to law school straight out of undergrad? Can they hurt you if you've already been admitted somewhere? Can they help you if you're waitlisted?

To provide context, right now my gpa is around 3.66 and I really want to get it over 3.7 this semester.

Law School Admissions / Dropping a major?

So I've been an econ and English major and now it's my senior year and I have two or three classes left to complete my economics major. However, I really don't like econ and I've been keeping up with it because it's more "practical." But now, I'm pretty much set on law school and I feel that my economics class this semester may hurt my gpa, especially since I could take an easier, more enjoyable class in its place in which I could get an A+. Anyway, point being...would law schools look unfavorably upon dropping a major this late in undergrad or will a higher gpa more than make up for that?

Does this generally mean single, double, or 1.5 spacing?

On these things, can you single space or is it advisable to do 1.5 spacing at least?

Thank you so much! I'm willing to read anyone else's essays too.

I think it sounds like you need to take more practice tests untimed. This may help you get used to the games section without panicking or collapsing. Plus, with untimed practice at LR and RC, you can take your time deciding which answer choice is correct. This way, when you start taking timed practice tests, you can go faster because you will spend less time debating between answer choices.

Last weekend, I didn't take any prep tests (out of laziness) and I ended up scoring a 180 on Monday for the first time. So out of superstition, I'm not going to take any preptests this weekend either and hope for the same this Monday.
