Oh, and a big one that I always reminded undergrads is not to forget that No Credit and No Pass are usually counted as fails by LSAC. Don't screw around and think, "Oh, I can always P/NP it," when you have that option late in the term or "it's only a credit/no credit class."
wait........even if its a pass? What about those universities that don't give ANY grades? Like that one that the guy who wrote the simpsons went to?

That's  true, but you can work the system early and get A's in frisbee golf etc.

The sad reality is that the smarter kids look dumber with the GPA. Any idiot can get a 4.0 in Business Marketing. A Pharmacology Major with a 3.8 looks worse on paper in law school admissions.

Its just the way it is

As groundhog's post accurately says "no".

For all intents and purposes your classes mean very little it is just the grades you get. I got so many b.s. A's for playing basketball in college and my GPA was artificially inflated, which helped me in the admissions process.

If your only a freshman I also would not worry to much about law school etc. Get the best possible grades you can to keep your doors open, but enjoy the college experience. It will be a life changing time in your life and many people that are deadset on going to law school in college change their mind due to numerous circumstances and many others such as myself that said they would never attend law school end up going.

So the best thing you can do is keep your GPA high so that if you want to pursue law school the door is open, but don't get to caught up in whether you are taking the right math class your Freshman year of college. It means nothing as far as law school admissions go.

Congrats on getting into college and enjoy your time!

Short answer: No. Get the highest GPA you can. It's extremely unlikely that ad comms will spend more than a couple minutes looking at your transcripts unless something jumps out.

I'm an incoming freshmen at UC Riverside and I have been placed in an intermediate algebra class (I'm not great at math). I'm a political science major so it doesn't affect me too much in terms of being behind. However, does the fact that I'm starting at the bottom hinder my law school chances? I'm aware that GPA and LSAT score matter most, but does the difficulty of classes I take during UG also have an effect?

When his citizenship becomes an issue the obvious solution is trial by armwresting between Arnold and Scalia.

That is what the founding fathers would have wanted.

The modern sissy mans version of a duel to the death on the white house lawn??

The man in that video should be President haha. Pretty impressive that Predator featured not one, but two state governors. Why not take it one step further with a President/VP 

How could you not support a Schwarzenegger/Ventura ticket.
