It's great that you're thinking about your education.  We've all been in universityland for so long that it becomes very hard to write any way other than the "proper" way or something approaching.  Maybe The Man has ripped our souls away.  Either way don't worry about it.

these 'shortenings' might be acceptable on other boards, but we are very mature people who like to use proper grammar and speak to each other in incredibly civilized ways.  







PUHAHAHAHA...i couldnt stop laughing at that even as i was typing.

*objection* will you be doing your studies in dubai or are you coming to the US for your undergraduate degree?  you need to major in something challenging and something that interests you.  you also need to bust your ass and make sure that you have the best grades possible.  the LSAT exam is unlike any exam that you have ever taken before, so you will need to prepare as much as possible so that you can get a good score. 

just do a google search for pre-law, and you will come across various website of university pre-law information.  they will be a good start for you.  good luck.

From what I've heard, if you focus on any area of the "sciences," law schools look favorably at that.  I don't know if engineering is a science, but a lot of people got into great schools with that degree even though it goes beyond conventional wisdom.

For you engineers, yout degree is becoming to generic, it used to be civil, electrical, mechanical, now all you have to do is know computers get a Computer science degree (MIS is what they call it at my school) and you can call yourself an engineer.  what's up with that

a lot of people study political science.  but i think i read somewhere that just as many lawyers recommend studying business before law school than liberal arts.

do you have a pic?

Hmm, I got a BS in Chemical Engineering, not plain ol' engineering.  Now, information science is NOT engineering.  All the MIS people graduated from the College of Business.  I don't think law schools necessarily look favorably on engineering or science degrees unless they are Patent/IP heavy schools.  But I have noticed that usually patent attorneys with a science background had a PhD, while people with an engineering background had a BS or BE degree.

Do I recommend that *objection* major in engineering?  Yes and No.  Yes because its a good precursor for patent/IP law, which still remains in demand.  No because these last  five years of my life were hell on earth.

Yeah well that's my point.  If you majored in chemical engineering, that is one hell of a tough major, and is respected regardless of law school.  I just hate people comng from 2 yesr tech schools, learn about computers, and call themselves engineers.  It's more frequent than apparently you think.  My uncle majored in nuclear engineering, and still uses AOL (I hope you get the innuendo)  The point is if I majored ohemical, civil, nuclear engineering etc, I sure as hell don't want to be classified in the same group as a "computer engineer"  That's terrible, and I am neither.  (Economics)  ;D
