Get the highest possible grades you can. Worry about the LSAT in a few years.

Don't dick around. I did and I regret it. You should be able to pull off a 4.0 (or close to it) at CC in any liberal arts program.

Do not major in criminal justice, which is looked down upon by law schools. Pick something more traditional yet easy like poli sci, history, or English.
