I'm new here and I wanted to ask you guys some questions about law school.
I'm someone who currently doesn't have a college degree.
I entered college a long time ago, and then dropped out due to mental illness.
I've been thinking about really applying to school since then, and have been getting nervous about how to do it and what to study.
I have dreams of applying to law school after taking an LSAT, scoring as well as I can on it, completing college, and applying to as many and as many great law schools that I can after finishing college.
This all began after having an interest in public service and learning about politics, and then taking interest in learning about the law and maybe becoming an attorney after learning about the federal government, local government, state government, and elected officials casually.
I started to have a new found respect for how laws were made and how they are made, the work that legislative bodies do, and how executive officers in government implement and execute the law.
After having that interest I've been thinking I want to try the mentioned and become an attorney, but I am nervous about studying certain concentrations in college as the courses may be too hard to pass or pass well.
Many law students studied political science before entering law school and majored in it in college, but I think that subject may be too hard to major in for me and may have me achieving a low GPA if studied.
The political science major seemed interesting at first since it seemed to offer me a chance to learn about politics, government, and the history and functionality of law more -- but the way it's explained is way too difficult to understand for me and seems to over complicate things.
I viewed an online course about it, and got stumped when the course started to explain things in a way too difficult to understand for me and --associated the learning process with things found unnecessary to associate it with.
Those things would be something called "game theory" as an example in this particular course. It dealt with associating the course material with arithmetic, and confusing that material with graphs or something as well. I don't want to go off topic but if any of you care to look that up you'll see what I mentioned.
Political science my be too difficult for me to study in college and pass well or at all, so I've been thinking about studying psychology or another subject found to be more simple for me to understand well or at all and pass.
Law schools accept all forms of college degrees along with LSATS for admission, so if that's true that may be smart or fine to do.
I'm nervous about studying something other than political science though, since 25% or more students study that, and they must be doing it for a reason if that's the most popular major for law school students when they were in college. I'm afraid of being unprepared for law school if I don't, or under-prepared.
What should I do?
Is it true any college major in college is appropriate to study in college to get into law school? Are there no advantages to any in particular? Can I study other subjects and be just fine applying with a quality LSAT test score? Not fine?
Will any major other than political science under-prepare me? Leave me unprepared? Prepare me mediocre-ly or well enough? If I can, I rather major in something I believe I can pass more strongly to improve my chance of having a higher GPA upon graduation. That can improve my law school admission chances.
That's opposed to when applying to law school like most students, and studying political science and not doing as well for myself.
I want to get into as many law schools as possible and as many great ones, and a higher GPA upon graduating college and a quality LSAT test score can help me do that.
