Students who are preparing for a professional program such as law should choose a major based on their academic interests and abilities. Strong grades, demanding courses, and a well-rounded curriculum are more important than a student's major. In fact, professional programs such as law schools accept all undergraduate majors.

At Purdue, preprofessional students (premedicine, prelaw, etc.) have access to an academic advisor for their specific undergraduate major as well as to the Center for Pre-Professional Advising, which helps students achieve their professional school goals through services and resources including:

• Individual advising

• Group workshops

• Guidance in preparing to become a competitive professional school applicant

• Assistance with professional school applications

• Career guidance
