Question about Credits per Semester....
« on: June 14, 2008, 11:14:15 PM »
I am thinking about taking 4 class (12 credits at my school) instead of 5 this Fall. This would mean that I would probably graduate in 5 years instead of 4.


So my question is: DO law schools look at credits per semester? Also, is it better to sacrifice some GPA to graduate sooner (4 years instead of 5)?
Pretending to be black all day errrrrrr day. Can't stop won't stop.

sacrificing GPA to graduate sooner is NOT a good idea. If you look throuout this thread you'll see that GPA and LSAT are pretty much all that matter. In fact, many people here press to take tame off b/t UG and LS. Law schools do not care how long it takes you to graduate (I'm saying this as a soon to be young applicant myself).
I,m not really sure about the 12 cr question but it I'd be bored if I only did that much. If you feel you should do it though, find something to fill the extra time other than partying. Job, voluteering, campaigning etc.
