Any transfer students considering law school?

<p>i'm currently in my second year at a community college in CA, and i just finished sending off all my transfer apps! now for the waiting.</p>

<p>i'm very interested in going to law school after graduating, particularly if i get accepted into my first choice, uchicago. i don't have any friends in or considering law school though, and i especially don't know anyone at my current school with that inclination. i just need general information, realistic things to expect, etc etc. when should i first start taking the LSATs? is it offered pretty much year-round, or around certain seasons? can/should i register to take it for the first time even now, before transferring to a four-year uni?</p>

<p>You should go over to the Law School Forum and read some of the threads. <a href="http://www.lsac.org%5B/url%5D"&gt;www.lsac.org&lt;/a> will answer a lot of your questions about the LSAT. In short, no, you should not take the LSAT before you transfer as its pointless and you have more time to study that should be utilized.</p>

<p>What type of classes did you take at the JC? I'm in the same situation just an earlier stage... I'm checking into a JC, but don't know what major to choose because everyone offers Paralegal and not Law.</p>

<p>What do I do?</p>

<p>^^Unlike Med school, there are no required courses for Law school. Neither Law or Med school require any specific major, you can major in anything you like. And if Law is anything like Med, you don't want to major in something technical like Paralegal.</p>

<p>For the first couple of years you should just be taking transfer requirements and trying out different fields that you might be interested in.</p>

<p>^^^^^^ Thank you so much miss/mr. Lol Idk if ur male or female but that does help. I should just look at the 4 years that I like and take their transfer requirements. That kinda sucks I wanted to take a couple fun classes for the subject in the process. But hey, it is what it is. Thnks</p>

<p>Empirical evidence suggests that economics majors tend to score highest on the LSAT, however that is simply correlation. Most people take the LSATs around junior year, but the most important thing to remember is to not even contemplate taking the test until you are 100% sure you are ready.</p>

<p>Seems like you should be able to take some classes you like, usually general ed requirements are broad (eg. physical/biological science, social science, humanities, etc.) and give a fair amount of leeway for you to choose classes that both fit the requirement and are interesting to you too.</p>

<p>You can choose any major for law school but majors that teach research, critical thinking/logic, and writing tend to best prepare you such as philosophy, english, history, economics, and the hard sciences.</p>

<p>Generally the most popular LSAT test is the June test date of junior year of undergrad.</p>
