How important is major/University?
« on: December 27, 2008, 07:02:31 PM »
I'm a student at georgetown's School of foreign service, I have about a 3.8.  I am wondering how important my major within the university/the university itself will be for my law school chances.  Haven't taken the LSATS yet

major is not important at all
university is not particularly important either

Fairly unimportant. However, if you keep your GPA above 3.8, you qualify for G-town law's early assurance program (which is only open to G-town undergrads).
