When you are choosing what to major in or what courses to study, it is critical that you study in areas that require extensive reading and writing in the field (e.g. Anthropology, Classical Studies, English, History, Honors Program, Integrated Studies, Peace and Justice Studies, Philosophy, Political Science OR any major in which you are writing at least 20 total pages per semester, if not at least one 20-page papers) AND where the faculty will give very specific feedback for your writing. It is wise to visit a number of department advisors to investigate the amount of writing expected in the majors that they advise for, in order to ascertain if that major will be an excellent preparation for law school. It is also very wise to use the resources in the Writing Labs on campus and request feedback from your professors. Don't be shy about that; it is the best preparation for law school.
