1) What did you major in during undergrad? Did you take any law / pre-law courses?
Philosophy and Political Economy. A few on philosophy of law, stuff like H.L.A Hart and, of course, Dworkin (and Hayek if he counts). I took a bit of conlaw at Yale for a summer thing before college but I definitely wouldn't describe anything as specifically prelaw.

A few seasons of Boston Legal and a couple of Grisham books on tape.
I guess I was general chair of my model congress in high school and it was definitely the best times of my life pre-college. It's certainly not too related to law or law school but I imagine it is more relevant than similar things like debate, forensics and model UN. I was also in a mock trial in the same program where I took conlaw that included briefs and stuff. I thought it was aawwweeesome, and I was great at it, so it kinda started all this.
Funny enough, I don't think I've interacted with a lawyer in any meaningful context.
