    I am attending Yale in the fall, and plan on going to Law school after my undergrad. I would like to enter real estate law. I can get a better GPA with PoliSci & enjoy it more, but I hear the business aspect/practicality of econ is more useful in the real estate world. Which should be prioritized?

    I hear that polisci prepares you for more general skills-including bits of economics-so I am leaning towards this, but am not quite sure.

    Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

    Economics is more practical.

    Honestly, your undergrad degree is fairly meaningless. Having one in important. Having one in a particular discipline is required in very few instances, such as when the courses offered are necessary to work in that field (think Accounting for a CPA, or Education for a Teacher). In law school you may specialize (or you may change your mind)but you are going to have to take classes in a broad spectrum of legal disciplines anyway. An undergrad degree semi-related to just one area of law really won't make much difference. Once you have that JD, no one is really going to ask much about your BA/BS.

    A gang of robbers broke into a lawyers' club by mistake. The old legal lions gave them a fight for their life and their money. The gang was very happy to escape.

    "It ain't so bad," one crook noted. "We got $25 between us."

    The boss screamed: "I warned you to stay clear of lawyers; we had $100 when we broke in!"

    =====================================================================

    Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, an honest lawyer and an old drunk are walking down the street together when they simultaneously spot a hundred dollar bill. Who gets it?

    The old drunk, of course, the other three are mythological creatures.
