potential pre-law student


<p>I’m a high school senior and I was accepted early decision to the college of arts and sciences at cornell univeristy. going to law school is definitely a possibility that i want to look into further, so i have a few questions.</p>

<li><p>i’ve been reading some threads on this forum, and one of them discussed how your undergraduate school and its reputation/prestige play a role in some law schools’ decisions…how does cornell’s undergrad rep/prestige factor into law school admissions at top schools like Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and Columbia?</p></li>
<li><p>how would a gov’t/econ double major @ cornell affect your chances at the aforementioned schools?</p></li>
<li><p>ECs matter a lot in college admissions…do they carry similar weight in law school admissions at HYS and columbia? or not as much so (mostly your #s)?</p></li>

<p>I’m sorry if some the questions were addressed in previous threads…</p>

<p>I’d really appreciate it if you gave me some insights!!!</p>


<li>Cornell is fine.</li>
<li>Government or Econ or both: all fine.</li>
<li>Some but perhaps less emphasis on ECs. But do something.</li>
<li>Think about how to get to know a professor or two well enough to get meaningful rec's. It can be harder than in HS.</li>
<li>Grades and test scores have to be there for HYSC.</li>
