For a Student Interested in a Pre-Law Curriculum, Getting Accepted to Your Best College is Vitally Important.
The universities that will often prepare you the best are those that don’t offer a pre-law major. Steer clear of a vocationally-oriented major like Pre-law or Business Law. These majors will not train you for the depth of study and analysis you will have in similar courses in Law School. There is much surface-oriented instruction in these majors. The college you choose must offer rigorous courses preparing you to attain a level of mastery in your chosen field—preferably: history, economics, government, philosophy, mathematics, science, literature or the classics.
Law School admissions committees like to see that you have approached your college studies on a more theoretical level, with attention to academic breadth, verbal communication skills, and written coursework that requires you to unpack, edit, revise, and deeply analyze your own writing. Law School appreciates when one studies the social sciences and humanities to grasp and be empathic towards the social setting from which legal problems emerge.
The right college or university program strengthens your work skills in a professional world where: critical thinking and problem solving, decision making, self-motivation and skilled time management, are a way of life. Different schools—even the ones whose names you identify as the top schools in the nation—have different strengths and very different approaches to your field of interest.
College-bound students interested in a pre-law course of study cannot undervalue the credentializing they can receive from the right school. After all, your hard work and interesting, authentic stories bring you to college, but college is the intellectual incubator and social network that helps you excel in life. It’s essential to choose the right school with the most exceptional, well-connected, and nurturing faculty for your future work as an attorney!
There has never been anyone like you and there never will be. Now let your colleges know that.
