JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Getters and Setters Creating Setter Methods

I'm not quite sure what to set Junior and Senior equal to in my conditional statement.

I tried level and level(), but it both times it said "level is not defined."

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

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

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

  set major(major) {
    this._major = major;
    if ( level().value === 'Junior' || level().value === 'Senior'  ) {
      this._major = major; 
    } else {
      this._major = 'None'
    }

  }

}

var student = new Student(3.9, 60);

You need the this. prefix to reference class elements from inside the class, but there's no .value attribute.

So instead of level().value, use this.level.
