What to do in undergrad for law school
Hi guys! I'm a high school senior that will be going to UT Austin next year. I'm going in undeclared because I'm not sure what I want to major in, but it will probably either be History or Economics.
Recently, I've done some research and have decided I want to be a lawyer (not sure what type yet but I know I want to help people). I've taken a practice LSAT online and got a 152 on it, so I hope I can significantly raise my score in the next four years.
So, is there anything else I should do in undergrad to prepare myself for law school other than studying for the LSAT and working hard for a high GPA? Is it possible to obtain a legal internship in undergrad? And could I have a shot at Harvard/Yale/Stanford Law if I work hard or will a degree from UT limit me to public law schools?
I'm also open to any general advice :) Thank you!
