taking at least one law-related class is good to help you make sure you like discussing cases.  class in logic also can be helpful on lsat.

I heart logic.

Honestly, look for a school with a good reputation, solid liberal arts stuff, and a lot of grade inflation.

something to consider...
after 4 years of undergrad, you might not get into law school or you might decide that you do not want to be a lawyer.
in picking a major, choose one that 1) will prepare you for law school and 2) will help you find a job in an area you want should you decide not to go to law school.
also, if you're interested in a particular area of law, you might need a specific undergrad degree (i.e. accounting or finance for tax law or some sort of science for medical malpractice, etc)

Can someone please post how the usual timeline is for someone that eventually goes into law school. I've been told four years of college, sometimes three.  :-\ Can someone just clarify what the common routine is(Like four years of highschool, four years of college(apply in junior year, and take LSAT). Is that correct?

I would say go wherever you want- but if you are trying to choose between 2 or 3 schools, pick the one that has a pre-law advisor.  Ours has been an amazing resource and I don't how people at schools without one find out all the stuff that she tells us (I guess they read message boards).

Also, she is very connected with the law school community so we get almost every dean/admissions director from texas law schools and some out-of-state schools as well.  Very nice resource to have.

PM me if you have any questions for me (doubt you will) b/c I don't usually check this board.

To be fair, many people have shared experiences with their pre-law advisors here that sound simply horrible. Having a bad pre-law advisior may be worse than not having one at all.

My pre-law advisor taught one of the history classes I took freshman year... she was a b*tch then, and I have no reason to believe she's not one now; so I've never talked to her about law stuff. Honestly, I think LSD is better than any advisor, anyway.
