I know it is definitely too early for me to do legitimate LSAT prep, but I want to know what type of course I should choose to benefit my college education in preparation for law school and the LSAT test? Or, anyone has good advice for starters?? Thanks!!
I'm a 2010 law school grad and currently a lawyer. I would advise you major in something more useful like business/Economics or science or engineering. This will give you an edge on the job market after law school ... The job market for lawyers is currently dismal. I'm a very optimistic person, and even I can admit that. It doesn't look like its getting better, so you shouldn't count on that (but it would be awesome if things improved!) Also, if you have an engineering or hard science background, you can do patent law / ip which is in higher demand.I'd recommend minoring in English or philosophy (or just taking courses) to get the edge for writing / reading and the LSAT. Also, a foreign language, especially Chinese could be helpful.Oh and also... Make sure it's your dream to be a lawyer and not a law student. While I enjoyed law school, 3 years is fleeting, and then you have to be a lawyer ... Which is often really different than what ppl think it is. Also, do research on the law school scam and the state of the legal economy so you know what you're getting into. And know that document review jobs are what new lawyers today are fighting for in ost places, as sad as that may seem.
