Biology major in law school?

I am a Biology major and I am going to apply to other places besides medical school just in case I do not get in, could I get into law school as a biology major? I am wondering because my school has a good law school. Would this increase my chances or decrease them? I suppose it really does not matter as long as my LSAT scores are good and I have a good gpa.

    Hey Plathy,

    As a biochem major, I can assure you that a biology major would work out just fine for law school. Attending the undergrad that is associated with the law school won't be a very big bump (unless you have an amazing GPA and the school at which you earned has a notoriously difficult biology department which, as a bioCHEM major, I doubt ;-) ). Focus on getting a great LSAT score and you'll have a shot at admission to a great law school.

    Good luck!

    You can really have any major you want going into law school as long as you have strong writing and reasoning skills. Some majors probably prepare you better than others, but strong applicants can get into law school with pretty much any major.

    Sometimes graduate schools are reluctant to accept their own undergraduates, so if you're thinking about law school as a backup, you should apply to more than just the one at your current school.
