My situation...

Here are the spark notes:
-Need 8 more credits to graduate with an UG accounting degree
-Have the opportunity to do a combined Ug/MAcc
-My school also has combined MAcc/JD program
-Taking LSAT in June
-Plan to go into Tax law (get llm)
-Big 4 internship this summer

So, based on this, what is everyone's opinion
Should I graduate in the fall, get another big 4 internship for the spring and then go straight to law school?
Spread out the 8 credits over fall/spring semesters then go to law school?
Do the combined ug/macc program and delay law school a year?
Do the combined jd/macc (4yr program)
Get the Macc, then get working experience with CPA, then law school?

Another quick question: Do law classes such as Taxation, Intl Taxation apply to the 150 hrs needed for CPA?

Took your advice and looked up my state's CPA requirements. Looks like the tax classes should count, and on top of that only 2000 hours are needed and they do not have to be in audit. I can get them from audit, tax, or industry. I still am not really sure what route to take though.
