If my ultimate goal is to become a lawyer, what is the best major for me to chose?
I've been bombarded with fliers for dozens of colleges telling me to apply, but I'm not sure what to apply for! I'm looking for some direction...
My son is applying to colleges right now and I know what you mean about the amount of mail you're receiving! Last night we were told by a college admissions representative that thinking about whether a school encourages or discourages undecided applicants can help a student decide whether that school is a good fit for a student. For example, some schools don't even allow declared majors in applications so everyone is undecided. Other schools require application into a particular major or school. So if you don't know what you want to do, or if you do know what you want to do, think about looking for schools that are already aligned in that direction.
Good luck - this is an exciting time for you!
