JeNeSaisLaw, thank you so much for making that clear. But would taking CC classes negatively influence my admissions process? Would adcom look at me and say "This kid clearly was trying to inflate his gpa so lets put him in the bottom of the stack." or would they not care at all? Should I write an addendum explaining my interest in art as a reason for taking summer classes?
absolutely not. its fine if you want to take the cc classes. law schools dont care. writting an addendum will hurt you because it will make them wonder why you REALLY took the classes. Grade boosting is much worse if you make it obvious that you did it.
