Ummmm...I don't think we have enough info about you to advise you on what route to go to.  Why did you choose business and law?  Do you plan on going straight through undergrad to law school?  What do you see yourself doing someday?

Get good grades.  Start LSAT prep 6 months early if possible.

Follow-up is a good idea, also.

eat lots of vegetables and remember, you can marry more money in 5 minutes than you can earn in the rest of your life.

Those advisors are always so useful!! Lawschool admissions is straight formulas at almost every school so high gpa and high lsat is the best route of course. I can say that many of my lawyer buddies did not have 4.0's and 170's but are all doing well. One transfered to Georgetown, one went to Michigan after doing I-banking for a few years and another is thriving at a small firm after graduating from DePaul and his g.f (from law school) moved from a p.i firm here to NYC as corporate counsel at a very nice make up company so just do the best you can on your BA and LSAT. Good luck!

Just remember to marry in a community property state.
Jk, that is horrible advice. Study hard, send your apps in early and you should do just fine. Best of Luck
