Switching undergrad after applying

Postby liplaw » Wed Jun 23, 2010 2:32 pm

Lets say you are applying your last year of undergrad. At the time of applying you planned on finishing the year at, say, Harvard, and indicated so on your application. But then--after getting accepted--you switch to a different college, say even an online degree.

Would that get you unaccepted?

Don't most schools require you to do the last 2 years of coursework with them to receive a degree?

Well, this distance learning degree can be completed in less than a year.

If one is a) sane and b) considering a transfer from HARVARD to some online school that grants degrees in less than a year, then one very likely has some extremely interesting, unique, urgent set of extenuating circumstances to explain such a seemingly-irrational move. Share those circumstances with the law school that accepted you and see what happens.

Most people applying straight out of undergrad won't find out they've been accepted to law schools until sometime late in their penultimate semester or early in their final semester. What the hell would have to be going on for it to make sense to transfer that late in the game?
