Pre-Law in high school / Re: From Art School to Law School

Your Major is fine. Law schools look first at your LSAT score and what grades you have in school. If you do not get in based on that they might look at how rigorous you undergraduate study was if your LSAT/Grades are not enough. I would not worry about what your major is except if you want to go into Patent/intellectual property.  For that you have to have a science background.  At my law school some people have wierd degrees and they still got in.  Do something you like. i was board getting my business degree.

When you get to law school you will learn those areas in a completly different way, so unless you are really interested in those subjects you don't really need to take them with one exception: Economics.  Make sure you REALLY understand Micro and Macro economics because thats what Torts is all about. Poly/Sc is a good degree for a law student. Don't leave school without learning how to give a speach.

The question about a corporate lawyer: the only thing you need to be a corporate lawyer is to get into a really good law school or one in a big city.  Corporate law firms care less about what classe you have taken. they care more about what grades you get in your first year of law school.

if i had it to do over again i would apply to a law school that allows Junior year transfer.  a lot of schools do allow that. also there are even some law school that let sophmores in (if you have a good GPA and LSAT) 

Classes to take:  Hard Math classes that make you think abstractly,  and writing classes.  Also if you are not a prolific reader learn how to read for 8-10 hours.  reading cases is interesting but make sure you can read for a whole day nonstop.
