Hi, my friend and I both want to be lawyers. we finally talked after a long time of not seeing each other and we got on the topic of college. and majors. etc. i asked her what do u want to major in? she goes "history.. for LAw" i'm like you want to major in history law!? i was shocked because i didn't know that it existed. she said, i want to major in history in order to be a lawyer I asked her, wouldnt it make more sense to major in prelaw? she says "to be a lawyer u HAVE to know ALL of history and u cant major in prelaw smart one.. i think i would know since ive been planning this since forever" does that even make any sense???
you have to know all of history to be a lawyer? Since when did lawyers need to know so much of history, i mean you should know a good amount, but not ALL of it...?
please help?

The purpose of college is to become educated. Focus on an education. AFter that, consider being a lawyer if your inclination is that. Many students are not focusing on an education, but rather, a job. Goodness.
