Admissions Requirements

Postby SDO » Tue Jan 26, 2010 12:00 am

Hi. I know that ABA accreditation standards say that a law school can admit students who have completed 3/4 of a bachelor's degree if they are age 23 or above and demonstrate ability to succeed in law school. Does anyone know which schools allow that besides Cooley?

Pearalgeal - What does your "Oh no" refer to?

Usually threads like this start up some sort of frenzy. I don't actually know of what other schools allow you in with such requirements...but I would imagine the decision to attend one of these schools should only be made after very, very careful consideration of expectations and realistic financial plans.

I've yet to see a law school that didn't require an undergrad degree. If the school doesn't, I can't imagine it is worth going to.

Most schools require a bachelor's degree these days, and the few that don't are not the kind of schools people on this board will be willing to recommend.

Echoing what others have said, in hopes that simple repetition will emphasize the point.

Peoples College of Law...but I don't think they're accredited.

Have you looked into finishing your degree?

Seriously, if you really want to find another such school, I would suggest that you work your way up the US News and World report list of schools, starting with the 3rd Tier, going to each school's website. Good luck.
