Since this is my first post, I might as well introduce myself. I'm Matt, I'm a freshman in college. Since I was a kid I have always wanted to become a lawyer. I want to major in political science, but my father and brother are telling me that I should go for a quantitative major. That way I can set myself apart from the liberal arts crowd, and have a good plan B. Math isn't really my thing, but what they are saying makes a lot of sense. My father is big on being your own boss, so he thinks I should major in something that I could do on my own. I think I will get my CPA then go for my JD afterwards. Would having my CPA boost my chances at getting into law school? If you guys could go back, would you start studying for the LSAT from your freshman year?
Sorry for all these random questions I'm throwing out everywhere, I just need second, third, and fourth opinions. I'm sure I'm not asking the right questions, but lets see what you all have to say.
