Law School Admissions / Undergraduate Stay
« on: October 25, 2005, 12:37:36 PM »
I'm currently a third year at a cal-state school and was undeclared up until the end of my second year. I decided to go into political science but I'm really reconsidering my position on it because I find it laborious and not what I expected. I do have a few English classes under my belt and I am currently considering a switch to English. The only problem would be an extended stay of an extra year or so to complete the BA. I'm also doing a few minors. Would law schools count that against me?

It seems as if everyone either is a double major or has a masters before entering law school. So is that the standard now? I'm also minoring in Asian American studies in addition to Poli Sci. I don't want to toil as an undergrad for too long. Even though I just finished my second year, I'll probably have to tack on an extra sem. or so to complete the bachelors. (btw, will that work against me?)

two questions in one post.  :)

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Vietnamese Law Students

First of all, are there any Vietnamese law or pre-law students on this board? And secondly, are the Vietnamese considered URM? I'm Vietnamese.  :)

Thank you so much for the feedback, it has been helpful. The reason why I even considered CJ as a major was because my professor majored in it at my current school and was accepted into UC Hastings. Keep in mind this was about 25 years ago, so maybe CJ was not as frowned upon in the AdComs. I visited an advisor to CJ and while she said there are always a few graduating seniors accepted into Law schools, it's generally considered an 'easy' major so try to study in something else. I'm pretty sure I will enroll in Political Science. Thanks for all the advice.

Law School Admissions / pre-law major

I hope I can get some advice between two majors I'm considering right now. I currently attend a public university (in the California State University system) and it's not the most prestigious of schools. That being said, which major would I benefit the most from - Political Science or Criminal Justice? I suppose Criminal Justice could be viewed as some type of "Pre-Law" major even though I am well aware that no one major can be defined as "pre-law." I tried English this past semester and found it to be  dreadful. I just finished my second year and need to commit to one subject for the next 2 years. Please help.
