Incoming 1Ls / Is my major right in preparing for law school?
« on: November 23, 2013, 05:56:43 PM »
I'm in my third year of my undergrad and I am a Public Policy major with a concentration in Non-Profit leadership. The school I go to ranks fairly well in it, among the top thirty. I am currently interning in the Immigration Services department in the office of a well-known refugee resettlement/humanitarian non-profit relief organization. The case workers in my office are accredited representatives for doing immigration legal work and that is what I assist with. I now want to go to law school and become an immigration lawyer or an Asylum Officer for DHS.

Should I stay a Policy Major? My school has a Philosophy major with a concentration in pre-law. I do very well in Economics, so there could be that. My final idea is Political Science with a concentration in International Affairs, as I think that would prepare me well for dealing with immigration policies in the future.

Help me out! I want to know which one is the best option not only for LSATs, law school, etc but also for helping me be on track to work in immigration.
