I have a degree in history and a minor in political science,
I’ve been thinking of going to law school I didn’t get the best grades but I would love to be an originalist constitutional lawyer like Clarence Thomas or Anthony Scalia. Beyond the degree and the money is it worth going for it. Argue the constitution as it was written when it was written, which is what Antin, Scalia, and Clarence Thomas argues for.
I know a guy who went to the University of Chicago law school which is equal to Harvard in terms of admission difficulty and he told me law schools prefer people with STEM backgrounds. I do know people who got into elite law schools with normal GPAs and humanity degrees but they must have gotten incredible scores on the LSAT and done amazing in the interviews. I believe the guy had a lot of volunteer experience too when he got into a top law school with a humanities undergrad GPA. It's more than just grade conversion. I know guys who got perfect 4.0s at U of T that got rejected by every law school they applied to.
