I'm currently a second semester sophomore who's currently pursuing a Global Affairs major and minoring in Japanese Studies. I plan on going to law school after college and I'm interested in intellectual property law particularly patent law but I have to have a bachelor's degree in a technical subject such as engineering or the sciences. I don't know if I want to go to law school but I'm considering it as one of my options. If I decide to add another major it would be Applied Computer Science in Software Engineering OR Bioinformatics. I'm also considering adding the computer science major because I want to have a lot of options and I feel like I can imagine myself working for a technology company either overseas or in the United States. I find computer science fascinating but I'm NOT really good in math :( I heard that not a lot of girls major in Computer Science so I don' know if this is a field I should consider going into. I want to graduate from college with not only a liberal arts degree but something that will be very useful for me. I want to have that versatile academic background. Also, I don't know if I should just stick to my current major and minor and not add another major or if I should add applied computer science. If anyone can offer me some advice about regarding what I've written, I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
This forum is about mathematics, and while career advice is sometimes found on here, your particular situation really requires career advice external to the mathematical sciences. ("What are your goals in life? What do you really want to do?" Etc.) I suggest you ask on academia.SE, but even those folks may not be the right crowd. You are looking for very personal advice, and I don't think this is the right forum to find good advice so tailored to you.
You know who will be the people to talk to? Friends in the Computer Science Program in your school, the departmental counsellors, your advisor, etc. Realize that people at your university will probably be your best contacts to answer this question.
