I am leaning towards the Paralegal mainly because I am awful at math and I don't have to take a math class with that option. I was thinking though that the the BA would have more real world applications. What do you think is better and why?
TL;DR- which is better and why? Also I suck at math.
Which one do you want
to do more? Don't let math scare you away from a degree path simply because it's hard. For me, I wanted to study Biology last year. I let chemistry push me into a different path...that was a mistake and I hated myself for it. When I go back (not this year, but next) my first stop when I go back to campus is to my old advisers office to change back in to Bio.
If you're not good at math, find someone in the class who is and study with them. Use the resource centers available. Don't let a course or two push you into a path you're not entirely comfortable with.
