Question about Credits per Semester....

Question about Credits per Semester....
« on: June 14, 2008, 08:14:15 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)?

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.
