I'm a home schooled, 7th grader (starting my future early ehh?)in Louisiana and I want to be a lawyer I know 7 years of college, 4 of regular 3 of law. Money *IS* an issue. Well, anyways my questions are: 1.What are some good colleges I could go to? 2.Could I move into the state where the college I want to apply to is, and get the in-state tuition fee? 3.How much could financial aid reduce my tuition costs? (i'm pretty sure i'd get accepted for it :/) 4.What should I major in? 5.How many classes would I have to take at a time? Thanks:) ***Important*** Please don't say "Your to young to worry about this." because, your never to young to prepare yourself for anything.
1. The best thing I can tell you to do is look at the US news rankings of undergraduate universities. 2. This varies state to state. I know at a minimum a state would require you are a resident for at least 6 months prior to getting in state tuition. Note that if you go to a private school you will pay the same tuition regardless of what state. 3. For undergrad it could reduce it to nothing or just by a little bit depending on your families financial position when you apply for aid. Note however that there is no financial aid in the sense that you don't pay it back for any graduate school including law school. The only financial aid available for law school regardless of your income situation is federal student loans which you have to pay all back plus interest. 4. You should major in something difficult that focuses on critical reading, writing and thinking. Most law school bound students major in one of the following: Political science, english, history, philosphy ect. There is no pre law requirement. 5. To earn your bachelors in 4 years you will probably have to take 14-17 credits (or 4-6 classes depending on how many credits each class is) per semester, 2 semesters per year. A bachelors degree usually takes around 120-130 credit hours to complete. Law school is about 90 credits to complete so you take about 13-15 credits a semester for 3 years. Best of luck!
Being in Maine is kind of interesting because practicing law there is different. Oh Napolonic law carry over. A good college is dependant of what it is that you want out of an education, what size and fit you think will work for you. There are the LSU's which are HUGE, or there are the Tulane's that are smaller and private. Both provide an education, but the out of class room experiences differ greatly. You won't be able to get in-state tuition at another school, unless your family owns properity there. Living there simply as a student does not grant instate tuition. You can manipulate it more after your freshman year, but there's really no good way to do it prior to your freshman year. Going into Law you can pick from a Social Science, Philisophy, Pre-Law Program, but in the end I've seen almost any major get into law school dependant on their LSAT scores. A lot of times you just want to show you're able to use critical thinking skills. Typically five or four classes, for fifteen or 12 hours is the norm. More than that it get's hard to balance it all.
1. There are too many answers to this question. (BTW, you ARE too young to worry about this.) Until you have some idea what part of the country you want to go to school in, what size school you'd like, etc., there's no way to give you even a medium-length list of colleges. 2. What it takes to qualify for in-state tuition depends on the state. In many (probably most) states, your residency for tuition purposes is determined by your parents' place of residence. Also in most states, you would have to establish that you moved into that state for purposes other than to qualify for in-state tuition. In other words, plan to pay out-of-state tuition if you choose a school outside of LA. 3. See answer #1 - no way to answer this one without knowing your family's financial circumstances and which school you'll be attending. 4. This is from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook: "Although there is no recommended “prelaw” undergraduate major, prospective lawyers should develop proficiency in writing and speaking, reading, researching, analyzing, and thinking logically—skills needed to succeed both in law school and in the law. Regardless of major, a multidisciplinary background is recommended. Courses in English, foreign languages, public speaking, government, philosophy, history, economics, mathematics, and computer science, among others, are useful. Students interested in a particular aspect of law may find related courses helpful. For example, prospective patent lawyers need a strong background in engineering or science, and future tax lawyers must have extensive knowledge of accounting." 5. Undergraduates usually take 14-17 credit hours per semester, or 4-6 classes per semester. A credit hour translates to approximately 1 hour per week in class, so you would average 3-4 hours in class per day. Did I mention you're really a little too young to worry about this? Especially since most college graduates have changed majors at least once between high school graduation and college commencement...
