Business Management Major

edited February 2008 in Law School
Hey guys I am currently a junior Business Management major at James Madison University. I was wondering if law schools will look down on me because management may not be "as rigorous" as accounting like some of my peers say. Would it also be wise of me to minor in poli sci? I currently have a 3.4 and will get into the meat of the business mgmt classes next semester.

Thanks.

    The minor is unlikely to make a difference.

    But since any major is accepted for law school, is management still alright? I feel like its the business major that interests me more than accounting, and will certainly be easier to get a higher gpa in.

    Any major is certainly accepted. But unless there's any possibility that you can change your major, it's a moot point and there's no sense worrying about it.

    Well I could change to something like finance, but I think management will offer the best chance for the highest gpa

    All majors are acceptable for law schools. Academic majors (economics rather than management, sociology rather than advertising, biology rather than physical education) are preferred to vocational ones. Finance doesn't strike me as an improvement relative to management, although it is probably more rigorous and recognized as such.

    More important than your major is the numbers game. So keep plugging away and try your best when the appropriate times come.

    Yes, most of the professors I have talked to have said high gpa is the thing I should shoot for, and that management will offer the best opportunity to accomplish that. I was an accounting major, but decided it would be near impossible to achieve around a 3.6 or so in such a rigorous curriculum. Also, I did not want to put myself through the accounting curriculum if I had no interest in being an accountant.

    Your current major is fine. Plenty of business management majors get into good law schools. Concentrate on getting a high GPA and a high LSAT score.
