Assuming this isn't some kind of flame, I have the following advice:

1) Don't type in all caps.  It's considered rude.

2) Virtually all law schools in the United States require you to have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university before they'll even consider admitting you.  You cannot go to law school straight out of high school.  You must go to college first.

3) Very few colleges offer pre-law as a major.  I've never met a single pre-law major in my life.  You do not need a pre-law major to attend law school.  All you need is a bachelor's degree, and that can be in just about any subject.

4) People generally take the LSAT between their junior and senior college years or in the fall semester of their senior college years.  You typically begin studying for it several months before that.  If you are still in high school, you are nowhere near the point at which you need to worry about this yet.
