Hey, I was wondering if you guys could help me out. I have a rather weird situation and could use some advice. I'm interesting in applying to law school next year. The thing is, I am only a freshman at my university but pretty much already have junior status. Basically, I will be graduating after my sophomore year as a psych major, probably with honors. I am not a prodigy by any means - I was just smart enough to take CC classes (and do very well in them) while I was in high school and during the summers.
I currently have a 3.62 overall GPA (with A's in difficult classes like Statistics, Physics, English, and Calculus and Analytical Geometry) and I expect to have about a 3.5 by the time I'm done with this year. I expect to get a pretty good LSAT score, but probably not anywhere near amazing. I am just assuming this and I haven't actually done much research on the LSAT. I also have solid EC's and will get solid recommendations.
I am looking to apply to some mid-major schools and probably one top school ED, possibly Notre Dame. Basically, I don't feel it would benefit me in any way to be a double, or even tripple major. Basically, I figure there's no point to hang around my university and pay such a high tuition when I already can get my degree in 2 years.
Am I completely over my head or does this sound reasonable?
