Take at least 3 composition courses; one after the other. After the 3rd one, correct punctuation, grammar, and the standard essay format: introduction, body, and conclusion, along with topic sentences will become second nature. You don't need math for law school, per se. But, being familiar with algebraic and geometric concepts will help you when you take the LSAT. To stay motivated while you hone your basic math and English skills, read Supreme Court opinions on the side. I say that because Supreme Court opinions are easy to understand: the Justices spell out everything in a logical format. Approach law school as you would approach the t.v. game show, "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" You need an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the law. I found this out AFTER I start my first year many years ago. Only now do I know what it takes to succeed.
