Any 4-year college you are in can help you with law school since there is a bachelor's degree requirement. Getting to law school is about the LSAT test prep you do outside of courses and your overall GPA.

Job’s Answer

Any college is acceptable, but the higher quality the college the better your odds. I would advise joining the college paper and write articles, which makes you a potential member of the law school law review. Additionally, I would join the college debate team. Both the writing and debating skills are looked on favorably by law school admission committees. You must have a strong GPA for consideration, so make sure not to take very difficult classes until you understand the subject matter. Finally, you must take the LSAT. It is a logic and reasoning test. I would advise taking a LSAT prep class 1 year prior to taking the test, use workbooks to study for the test. Then take another LSAT course prior to the test. Those test results have a strong bearing to your ability to get into law school.

Hi Izaiah,
It depends what you mean by easier transition. If you want the living arrangements and social aspect to be easier, then attend a college that also has a law school so you are familiar with the area and how the school teaches/tests. For example, going to UPENN undergrad and then UPENN law school might help with that transition.

Saheleigh,

I agree with Job, the college you attend for your undergraduate degree will not matter so very much in your transition to law school. What will matter a lot is what you do during your time at college. Doing the things Job suggested, and any other things you can do to improve your ability to reason well, write clearly and concisely, and speak persuasively -- those are the things that will make your transition to law school easier. Your transition will be easier because you will be better prepared to perform well in law school.
