How to be an Attorney: Step 1: What to do in College

I am a first-generation law student so I had no idea what to do in undergrad that would set me up for success to (one-day) be an attorney. I had no idea how to get into law school, what to expect in law school and then what to do once I was in law school to become an attorney.

Unfortunately, the law school advisor at Wake Forest was absolutely atrocious. She told me I would never get into law school or be an attorney. So, I had to figure it out all on my own, and I would’ve loved a guide on exactly how to get into law school and everything in between.

Now that I am in my final year of law school, I thought I would make a step-by-step guide through my eyes about all the steps I took to become an attorney (even though I’m not an attorney yet as I’m writing this, by the end of all these posts, I will be).

We’re going to have to start with the basics, and from the beginning.


1.          Go to college.

2.          Take interesting classes, enjoy college (!!!) but also care about your grades.

3.          Pick a major (doesn’t matter which one). I was an English and French Studies double major, and I think they both set me up for success. (P.S. If you want to study patent law you need a science degree)

4.          While in undergrad decide why you want to go to law school and when you want to go (right after undergrad or do you want to take a year or multiple years off).


Stay tuned for post two where I discuss how to apply to law school.
