I'll echo everyone else here and say that you should major in what YOU like. I tried a Political Science major and it lasted for all of two quarters. I switched to a double major in Spanish (used to be a second major to PoliSci) and Applied Linguistics. Lo and behold, my GPA is higher, I'm happier, and I feel like I'll be better prepared for law school/graduate school because I feel more involved in what I study.

Also, don't go into college thinking you'll major in something and never change your mind. I know maybe two people who did that; the rest of us changed majors at least once. It might take an extra year, even, to figure out what you enjoy, but you'll get a better education for it.
LSAT preptest scores: 164, 163
GPA: 3.4 and rising

¿Qué me pasó?

The most unique major I can think of is botany (the study of plants for those of you who don't know).

Btw, business sounds like a good idea.

I majored in Archaeology...that's pretty unique, no?
