Most universities would take such a student, but at highly selective universities, like Harvard, not every such student. My suggestion, therefore is to keep an open mind, and really think about what you want in a school. As a freshman, you probably don't have many ideas about what you want, but you will come application time. Keep your grades up, be active in things you are passionate about, and you'll be in a good position to get into the best school for you.
it depends... Law Schools look at your GPA more than what you majored in, so major in something you are interested in as well as something you will do well in. The best majors for law school are Mathematics, Philosophy, Economics, International Relations, Political Science, English, History
Not only is akshaha07 a bit right, but you would also have to worry about the LSAT right after getting your Bachelors Degree. The reason why majors such as Physics,Mathematics, Philosophy,Economics, Government, or even Engineering (just to name a few), are preferred is because there are statistics showing the correlation between LSAT scores and major one takes getting a bachelors degree. Generally those listed above are ones which require more critical thinking per se in comparison to other majors such as the infamous criminal justice and pre-law (many believe this is the only path to law school). The LSAT is counts 60% and GPA is 40% towards your decision. This being said, make sure to pick a major you love, because you don't want to cut yourself short 40% because you only decide to do something law school recommends, but make sure that you study very efficiently for the LSAT before taking it, and you should be good.

Challenging, rigorous, and positive all describe students’ overall experience at Harvard. The academic challenge initially seems daunting to many students, but the intellectual growth facilitated by this academic powerhouse leaves students pleasantly surprised. The social life of most Harvard students acts as a counterbalance to the intellectual challenge, and not surprisingly, students forge lifetime memories and friends throughout their four years at Harvard.
The Harvard experience leaves most students yearning for more. The University provides undergraduates with a rich history, unparalleled cultural diversity, and intellectual rigor that challenge each student to fulfill every ounce of their potential. Students leave the College satisfied, prepared, and as a stronger, more aware global citizen than when they entered.
