My big "dream" (for lack of a better term) is to get a polisci degree and then go onto law school and then work for the (federal) government. While I realize that saving up for law school would be smarter, because a polisci degree won't get you anywhere if you just have it, I'm also worried I'll get to school and decide to change my major, and fuck myself over on money/a degree/etc.
i don't really agree with the guy above. But Law School has no prerequisites so DON'T take a useless major. If you want the easy route, take education classes, therefore your fallback plan would be becoming a elementary school, middle school, or high school teacher. Thus when you graduate from college you can take the LSAT go to law school and become a lawyer, or you can teach because you got the necessary degree in college. Again, Law School has no prereqs like Med School does, and like how becoming a teacher does. Thus major in something that has a future for your own safety. Your life will be 100x less stressful if you know that when you're 25-30 and you don't know what to do, you know that you can simply apply to an open teaching position. But that's one option, if you're smart, take pre-med, or if you go to a top 10 school take economics and then go work at a big bank on wall street. Hope this helps.
