Just got a quick question, I was wondering if it matter what undergrad degree you take since im applying soon. I was going to take science but my dad said i should just take arts, he is already a lawyer but i just want some other opionens. Do law schools even consider the undergrad degree you take?

The lore goes that it is considered, but not nearly to an extent that you'd actually want to chose one degree over another.  Choose what you think you can do well in!

Here's my advice...

I'd recommend taking whatever program you find the easiest and have the most interest in.  I am not saying that you should take the easiest program out their, but you should take something that are good at and are interested in so that you will perform well in your program.

So there is no right or wrong program to be in, there are only programs that suit you and programs that don't.  Only you know yourself well enough to make the call.

Who wants your advice? You couldn't even defeat Bush after he lied to start a war.

Heh, I'm actually very popular in Canada, eh! If Canada were given its fair share of those darned electoral votes I probably would have won!

I know that UofT Law bumps grades from certain programs, specifically UofT Engineering and Schulich Business.....I'm guessing they probably bump their own business undergrad too.

How much of a "bump" they give... no idea lol
