Grad School before Law School?
I'm currently a Junior (age 21) at a university majoring in Criminal Justice with an overall GPA of 2.91. I don't plan on graduating for another 2 years so I can boost my GPA to what I plan on a 3.3-3.6. I've been thinking a lot lately if I should go straight for my Masters Degree after I graduate college to study International Relations with a focus of Security. But my main goal is to become a Lawyer and go to Law School. Is it a good idea to get my masters then go to law school, or go straight to law school? I'll be 23 when I graduate from college with my bachelors degree and I don't feel qualified for law school so I was hoping a masters degree will help prep me and I also really enjoy International Affairs/Security. I'm just worried about the outcome when receiving my masters degree, will it be a waste of time to get my masters degree or will it only benefit me in the long run? Will the masters degree open more doors for me with government jobs? Thank you in advance
