Master's or Bachelor's Degree for Law School?

Does it even make a significance to an applicatio or scholarships if I achieve a Master's rather than a Bachelor's, or vice versa? 

Besides GPA, is LSAT scores the only thing that really matters?

    Just get your undergrad literally in anything you want and take the LSAT. That is usually the easiest route.

    Don't waste your time (and money) getting a master's degree. Many law schools look favorably upon students who work for a couple of years before going to law school. They have real world experience, they're more mature and they're more focused. That's what my daughter did and she received a generous scholarship for law school.

    Most students who enter law school only have a bachelor's degree.  Having a master's degree would set you apart, and would also indicate that you can handle graduate-level work.  But if you have good grades and a good LSAT, it won't make that much of a difference - they'll take you anyway.
