Jessica’s Answer

Hi,


If you are interested in becoming a lawyer, the law school you attend is much more important than the college you attend. Law schools do not put much weight into what school you went to for college, and focus more on your performance on the LSAT and your GPA. Whichever school you choose to go to, just make sure that you do your absolute best.


Another thing to consider is the cost of the undergraduate institution. Law school is very expensive so if you are able to go to college at a very low cost, that could alleviate some of your student loan burden

Hi,
I agree with the other responder. I attended Harvard Law and it has definitely opened doors for me; however, I always remind my students that you are responsible for making your own success. The truth is, after about 3-5 years of practice no one will know or care where you went to law school. Best wishes

Ed’s Answer

Not necessarily. There are many top notch schools such as Yale, Georgetown, Princeton, Stanford, and UCLA. I am a graduate of UCLA. While undergraduate schools are important in determining which law school you will attend, grades and LSAT scores are also important. Good luck.
