JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Getters and Setters Creating Getter Methods

If thought I made a pretty simple conditional statement but it says "Bummer: unexpected token else"

class Student {
    constructor(gpa, credits){
        this.gpa = gpa;
        this.credits = credits;

    stringGPA() {
        return this.gpa.toString();

    get level() {
      if (this.credits > 90) {
        return 'Senior';
      } if else (this.credits <= 90 && this.credits >= 61) {
        return 'Junior';
      } if else (this.credits <= 60 && this.credits >= 31) {
        return 'Sophomore';
      } else (this.credits <= 30) {
        return 'Freshman';

const student = new Student(3.9);

Your if...else block has a Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token 'else' error. Read your code very closely and you'll see the problem. I would also recommend testing your JavaScript code in a code sandbox or in your browser's dev tools console. Good luck!

Ah... i got it... the ol' switcheroo
