It won't help you at all, but honestly I don't think any major would give you a real advantage. I'd say go Chemical Engineering just so you could get used to doing a ton of work and analyzing problems.
I was a political science major because career services suggested it for law school. The only thing it did for me was connect me with some good ex-lawyer professors for LOR and helped insure to myself that I wanted to go to law school. However, as far as substantive help goes. there is 0. I know a few extra cases in Con Law, nothing helpful at all.
I suppose one way to look at it is Poli Sci is easy, and you can really focus on the LSAT. Forget about what major will best give you an advantage, because there isn't one that will allow you do to magically better in law school than other majors. I'd say instead just focus on the LSAT night and day so you can get a high enough score to go to a school where even if you arent as good as everyone else you can still get a job easy. I wish I had done that instead of not taking the LSAT seriously enough.
