<p>it depends on what subjects you are good at. my guess is that you were admitted to Penn's CAS? then, u would be taking liberal arts courses at Penn vs. ILR courses at cornell. my experience tells me that no matter what college u attend, majors such as sociology, asian studies, history, etc. tend to grant highest grades within college of arts and sciences meanwhile majors like math/ physics/ or even econ tend to be grade deflated. </p>
<p>so imo this question is about what you would major at Penn. Although I go to Cornell now, i don't know much about Cornell ILR in terms of difficulty of courses. But, if I were you, Id go to UPenn and major in something easy there (something humanity-related), take easy electives et al to make sure that I rack up As.</p>
<p>one regret i have in college is majoring in Econ and pursuing a minor in math. Econ/ math/ science courses tend to be on curves and grading is tougher than humanities majors. </p>
<p>My advice: go to Penn and major in something easy if you are dead-set on law school and highly keen about getting top grades.
but, if u like cornell better than penn, go to cornell. (the reason I cant make a strong case for cornell is bc i don't know much about ilr nor the difficulty of getting A's in that program.)</p>
