Hi Daisy - That's great that you are aiming to become a lawyer. Firstly, I think a key consideration is costs - if you are trying to be economical to save up for law school later on, I'd suggest you do research on schools here in NY that provide good liberal arts/broader curriculums that provide you with a well rounded undergraduate background so that you come across as an astute/attractive candidate for law schools and that will allow you to focus on select student organizations that will show leadership/passion in certain things. If costs weren't a concern, there are obviously select feeder schools that will make it easier for you to get into the top law schools here (e.g. Columbia, NYU, Cornell, Fordham, etc.). But I think the key is to build up good grades and a well rounded undergraduate resume (includes internship opportunities that may be relevant). Hope that helps!
