Quote from: artfuldodger23 on July 30, 2010, 06:55:50 PM I heard that a good SAT score will lead to a LSAT score because LSAT is logic and SAT is also logic (especially for the critical reading)? It sounds kind of absurd because its a pre-college level test but I heard this from a lot of people who took their LSATs and are heading for law schoolThe only thing that will "lead to" a good LSAT score is lots and lots of preparation. It is somewhat similar to the SAT in the sense that neither are really testing substantive knowledge, but that's about as far as that comparison goes. A good SAT score may be predictive of a good LSAT score - I don't know - but one thing that is abundantly clear is that a good LSAT score requires preparation. Lots and lots of preparation.Just in case you missed that: Lots and lots of preparation.

Don't worry about which major is best for law school - instead worry about which major you enjoy and can do well in. More importantly, worry about how your chosen major will prepare you for life if/when you decide NOT to go to law school. English, polysci, and history are popular majors for law school (foolishly, in my opinion), but none of those provide easy alternate career paths. Science, engineering, accounting, nursing, etc. - those are studies and degrees that will do you well if you do not go to law school, and will also help you if you do. (Although a separate, perhaps somewhat amusing, subject would be why I think the engineering mindset provides a challenge during and after law school). [/plug]
Takeing advice from anyone who calls himself "stinkypants" might not be the best start for your young career.
