he's right to an extent. Sure, if I didn't take any physics / math courses, took all non-technical courses, stayed out of relatively challenging English / Philosophy courses, and did research with a prof in something related to law, I'd have near a 4.0 and an acceptance to HLS. In fact, I know somebody who did that with an econ degree (took a grand total of three math based courses, two of them dumbed down versions of harder classes). His hardeset classes were some of my easiest. And there's something to be said for it with the current admissions system. I'd do it if I had to start over again.
