I know an incredibly successful lawyer who has a degree in musical theory. He played the piano at some ridiculous level during undergrad.
Others here have Theatre majors, English majors, Women’s Studies majors, Forestry Management majors, Geography majors, Anthropology majors, French majors, History majors.... and all of them got into law school. Sciences might be your interest and/or comfort zone, but there is no magic degree to be competitive. Keep that in mind.
Sorry for putting you on the defensive. EDIT: I was mostly responding to your question to LuckyCharm "You think the odds are that slim?"
Whether or not a W on your transcript matters is more or less based on how competitive you are as an applicant. For most, a bombed mid-term will make virtually no difference to their GPA (maybe 0.01), assuming they score decently on the final. If you're in a position that every point counts and you need every mark to go up, then take the W. Most schools tend to not care about Ws on undergrad transcripts unless there's a ton of them.
Western and Queens as well as the holistic schools in Ontario. L2 is currently 3.15, hopefully 3.7 after this year. Current LSAT is 157, hopefully mid 160s next year. Obviously a lot of unknowns at this point.
The most urgent advice I'm looking for is whether or not to drop this course.
