What many consider "fluffy" are liberal arts degrees that really aren't marketable unless you go on to grad school. For instance, a four year degree in sociology simply won't translate into a big money job. A degree in engineering that takes the same amount of time, could get you twice or three times the salary of a sociology degree. But if you hate engineering and really love sociology, then it would be a waste. Major in what you enjoy because your GPA will be all the better for it. I know this because I caught hell for years when I told people I was majoring in Philosophy. I got everything from, "you don't intend to work after college, do you?" to "what Starbucks are you shootin' to work for after graduation?". But I intended to go to law school all along and was given the advice early on that Philosophy is an excellent first order discipline that prepares you well for LS. I actually really got into the Philosophy courses and that translated to better grades (3.7 UGPA) Seems like anymore, a BA won't get you squat anyway. I say focus on a course of study that you enjoy and will prepare you for whatever grad program you're interested in.
I'd love to join this LGBT club. It's the Legos, Gobots, Barbies, and other Toys group, right? I'll show up with an armful of toys.
...P.S. Another question - I found out that I can take 12 credits only per semester (4 classes) and still graduate with well over my required credits. Would Adcom and law schools look at it as a negative if I only took 4 classes a semester (junior and senior year)? I plan on getting straight A's with 4 classes. Thanks again.
