I'm learning more in this thread alone than in all of my hours researching on the subject. Wow.

FalconJimmy - I read in an earlier post that everyone should read your posts twice. I can see why he said that, I want to thank you and everyone who replied to this thread for taking the time to help me. I think the plan is going to be to get the degree in accounting first, even if it requires a Masters. I am blessed enough to have my education paid for so I might as well do what I can to make the best out of it. I am only 18, so I have a lot of time to think about getting my JD. Which as of right now, I will. I'm still keeping an open mind about everything, who knows, maybe I'll end up going tomedical! (Not in my agenda what-so-ever!).
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.
