Political Science is currently the “in” ticket nowadays because these students have already encountered law subjects in their undergraduate curriculum and more importantly, encountered the Socratic Method in some of their subjects.
This does not mean, however, that other courses are naturally inferior. A bachelor’s degree in English, History, Sociology, Philosophy or Literature is just as good as it does prepare students how to read well, logic, and proper reason.
On another hand, it is sometimes suggested by law alumni that in the end, all pre-bar degrees are equal in the study of law.
I agree with this sentiment. I believe that your choice in college is your ‘last’ piece of freedom before the shackles of law study bind you. Take any course that interests you – whether it is Political Science or a STEM course – and continue to cultivate skills that you will require in law school.
