Is it bad to take easy courses to raise my GPA? I'm a senior engineering major right now. I have one more spring term left until I graduate. I could also take a winter course, too. I have a decent GPA: 3.4/4.0 overall and a 3.85 for my engineering GPA. I have a job offer already for GE's ELDP program. I know that the ELDP program has some connections with the local school for graduate study... it's like I'm almost guaranteed in, but does it look bad (from a graduate school POV) to take courses that are way too easy? Like 4-credit gym classes?
