Does graduating in 9 semesters look bad?

Postby thedude221 » Tue Sep 14, 2010 2:07 am

I was on track to graduate this spring a year early but i may now need to drop physics because it makes no sense to me and would then need to take an extra semester in the summer, will this affect my chances at all? i doubt it but i just want to make sure.

???

Law schools care about you having a BA (or BS), the GPA you had in that degree, to some extent (depending) where you got that degree, and sometimes (again, depending) about unexplained gaps after you have that degree.

What they do not care about is you getting it in 3, 4, or 5 years. All are more common than you might think.

It only looks bad if your GPA sucks, in which case an extra semester of easy electives would help you a lot.
