Politics vs. Economics at NYU
Since my overall goal is to get into a good law school I want to do the major that will get me the highest GPA.
I have in interest in both majors. Before I came to NYU I wanted to major in Economics but I've been thinking of politics instead because economics seems like a major that is math heavy.
I have never taken a calculus class in high school and since I generally don't do well in math classes, I wanted to know whether Math for Econ 1 and 2 (MATH-UA 121 and 122) are hard math classes that could potentially lower my GPA. I also just want to know how hard or easy both the majors are and which one would possibly be better for law school?
Politics also seems appealing because the major is less structured and I can take more classes that I'm interested in. Also, more reading and writing would probably be beneficial.
