Dear High-schooler,I'm going to be a bit retro and suggest that you should get as much out of your UG education as possible, which to me means making sure that it is well-rounded in terms of the classes that you take. Calculus, Stats, History, Literature, all three sciences are - IMHO - necessary for you to be able to read a newspaper or a magazine and understand what they're talking about, or to go to the polls and know what you're doing when you cast your ballot. To the extent possible, you want to come out of UG being a reasonably educated and reasonably thoughtful person; you can save your specialized, professional skills for law school. It is unlikely that you will ever again have the opportunity to experiment and to think independently - your future employers won't allow it on the job, and, as a grad student with a keen eye on the employment market, you won't allow it of yourself in law school (you'll have to make Law Review, after all, and get those As). Be free, read widely, challenge your professors, learn to think clearly and analytically, ask the basic questions that hardly anyone thinks to ask.. You'll come out of it ok, and you'll be satisfied that you used the time well.
