JavaScript Object-Oriented JavaScript Getters and Setters Creating Setter Methods

"Unexpected token" error.

I've gotten an Bummer "Unexpected token" but I don't know why. Any help would be great.

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(x) {
    if ( this.level === "Senior" ||  this.level ==="Junior" ) {
      this._major = x;
    }else if {
      this._major = "None";
    }
  }

}

var student = new Student(3.9, 60);

Hello. In your set_major method you have an else if statement but you have no boolean expression to be evaluated. Since you do not have the boolean and you moved directly to the curly braces {}, the error says unexpected token: "{" (it was expecting a parenthesis with a boolean).

You can either add an expresssion to be evaluated or changed it to an else statement:

Current

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

Fixed

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

What an easy mistake... I could understand. Thank you!
