Graduating 1 Term Later

Postby JSC4 » Sat Apr 16, 2011 3:47 pm

Hey,
At my current undergrad program, if you partake in the co-op option, you ahve to graduate 1 term later, and i was just wondering, does this mean you have to wait for the second term+summer before you can enter law school (so basically when the year before me graduates)?

By "1 term later", do you mean a summer semester, or additional fall semester? If summer semester, you can still attend law school that year, you only have to complete your degree requirements and send an official transcript as proof of this before you matriculate. If fall semester, you would have to wait until the next fall semester if the school is only fall start, which most of the top schools are. Some schools allow you to start in spring though, so i'd assume you could be a spring start if you didn't finish until fall semester.
