Here's the advice you'll get from me and every other person you'll talk to who knows anything about the situation:
Don't go to law school now. Graduate. Work for a few years in the relevant field. Once you have some legitimate experience under your belt, sign up for an LSAT prep course. Spend the $1,000 for it. Then, write an excellent essay about the experience you got after undergrad.
Here's what you're going to do:
Disregard the advice and go to law school anyway, just like everyone else.
EDIT: And about going outside of California: Yeah that's probably not a good idea if you want to practice in California. Unless the law school you attend offers Cal Civ Pro and focuses on the Cal Penal Code in Crim Law and on the Cal Probate Code in Wills 'n Trusts. Just go to Stanford or Berkeley and be done with it.
