What are you paying for both of these schools? If you want to go to law school then keep your debt at a minimum.

Thanks all for your help.
I think I might major in Psychology...is that a good backup plan if I don't get into the law school of my choice?

If thats somthing you want to do with the rest of your life, yes.
For Psych, keep in mind there is a short ceiling without grad school.

+1. Some possible choices though: business, econ, computer science (not really engineering per se). The first two aren't even that great. There's a reason why STEM majors have decent job prospects.

So much this.

The reason why (most) people want a career that will make a lot of money is to "convert" that money into happiness through various means--e.g., buying stuff and meaningful experiences, security. If you can directly derive happiness from a career, you will have in effect cut out much of the middleman. You should be aiming for a career that will both provide happiness and money (to then buy more happiness).

Kind of off topic but,
Why do a lot of people in this forum have animals as their avatars?

I suggest avoiding an undergraduate institution that allows you to major in neuroscience.

In all seriousness, have you considered becoming an electrician or a plumber?

Yeah dude. In my class there are about 100 girls, and probably 10 of them are hotties.

There are also a few 2Ls and 3Ls who are straight dimes.

More importantly though, "Im in law school" works wonders on undergrads.
