Don't take a law major.  Pick something that you're interested in, that will challenge you and teach you to think and at which you think you can earn decent grades.  I recommend English.
I was referring to your intellectual penis. Which is quite robust.

But i want to be a small corporate lawyer.  I dont have to take a law major.. but I need to know a major that will be able to get me where I want and into a good law graduate school.

Yes, and that's what I was suggesting.  It doesn't matter what you take (as long as it's not a joke major, which pre-law often is.)  Your major is not going to get you into law school, your grades will.  So will the LSAT (even more than the grades), but you shouldn't be worried about that yet. 

P.S. law school IS graduate school.

A business or economics or accounting, etc. type of major would perhaps help with the corporate law... but I agree with the above posters that when it comes to getting into law school, all sorts of majors are represented.  Go with what interests you.

Bad advice above.  If you want to do corporate law then that is what obviously interests you.  You should try to do some kind of a business major that you find interesting.  Then if you decide not to go to law school or take time off then you can do work that interests you in the corporate world.  Don't rely on the law degree to get what you want.

A business major makes sense.
