i currently do not attend harvard, but i do know that harvard has the best law school in the nation. i am a mechanical engineering major interested in patent & intellectual property law and realize that simply majoring in engineering will probably cause my gpa to be lower than someone who has majored in something else easier. i know that med schools look heavily at GPA and MCAT scores and it is my suspiscion that law schools are probably same (looking at GPA and LSAT). i am trying to accomodate as many LAS type classes at the same time as possible, as i am very interested in political science, philosophy, etc... will law schools look more heavily towards these types of classes' GPA than my science/math/engy classes?
any type of advice would be greatly appreciated.

Lol. BS! I answered your post on Columbia's board...in that post you referred to Columbia as the best law school in the nation!
You'd make a fine lawyer ;-)

yeah i know. i did the copy and paste thing for yale, harvard, columbia, northwestern and uchicago. i wanted to increase the audience i guess. i forgot to blot out 'best law school', as i realize that columbia has the 3rd best law school in the nation (as of current).

I'm prolly concentrating in History of Art and applying to Law School. I think that as long as you have a solid GPA and your LSATs are higher, you'll be fine. I would think they look for diversity in majors/concentrations for incoming law school classes.
