B.S. in Political Science vs. B.A. in Political Science and Psychology?

<p>I am seriously considering Law school but I am leaning more towards the thought of not going. If it's possible, I would like to just go to graduate school get a Masters or MBA and get a decent job within the legal system. Right now my major is B.S. in Political Science with a concentration in Law/Public Policy with a minor in Psychology. This degree requires alot of Economics and statistics courses. On the other hand, I was thinking that I could double major in Political Science and Psychology and graduate with two B.A. degrees. Which option would be the best for me?</p>

<p>errr... I'm not too sure.</p>

<p>entropy: Although there are many ways that a law degree can help someone in other professions (banking, insurance, real estate just to name a few), the flow in the other direction is very sparse. In large part this is due to the ethical constraints and rules of professional conduct that prevent non-laywers from partneship in law firms. Thus, most ancillary services that law firm employ are in the form of "experts," and then only on a case-by-case basis.</p>

<p>I have decided to pursue Bachelor of Arts degrees in Political Science and Psychology, so that I can have more options in course selection and have the opportunitity to take Portuguese or French as foreign languages. I know for a fact that I will go to Graduate school but I don't think I will be attending Law school.</p>

<p>entropy: You should follow your heart and study what you like. One of the great things about law school is that there really is no required undergrad course of study required. I did not even think of law as a career until the end of my senior year of college, and I graduated with a B.A. in Anthro. So, good luck in your pursuits, and just know that you have not really closed any doors.</p>
