The effect of difficulty of classes..
« on: November 12, 2008, 01:22:36 AM »
Hey guys, I'm a junior currently in undergrad and trying to decide on what to do help out here please.

I just wanted to know if difficulty of classes i take in undergrad will influence my admission to law schools.  For next semester, I originally planned on taking 2x 300 level classes and 2x 400 level classes.  But my current LSAC gpa is a 3.3 and I want to raise it. I feel like by following my original plan, I might not succeed in getting high grades and study for the LSAT (june 09) at the same time.. But of course on the other hand if i took easy classes (i.e. 200 level classes).. it would facilitate the process a little bit more...?..

Please help me!!

I don't think adcomms generally look at the difficult of individual classes.  Where much ink has been spread over the notion that adcomms many times look at the difficult of a major as a whole or the UG institution, having 2 more 400 level classes and 2 less 200 level classes won't catch any adcomm's eye.

Take the classes that will help your GPA the most.
