Graduating in Summer 2012, Is Fall 2012 out of the question?

Postby DB1 » Fri May 20, 2011 4:14 pm

As the subject says, I will be graduating mid-July of next year and if accepted, would like to attend in Fall of 2012. Is this going to be possible as I wont be able to submit a final transcript until well after the acceptance letters have gone out.

I know this is a generalized question and every application is different, I mainly wanted to know if anyone has had experience with this or general knowledge on the situation.

Thank you

Everyone that goes straight from undergrad to law school has this situation. It's not a big deal at all. You'll have to send a final transcript that shows you graduated. That's all.

Yeah it's fine.

Most schools don't need the final transcript until August

Its the same situation as it was if you went to college straight from high school. Acceptance is granted while you are still finishing, but if you notice on the acceptance letters, it says something like "contingent upon successful completion of any works in progress."

I understand. I was 8 years removed from HS, prior to starting on my Bachelors, so I never had to experience that. Thanks again for the info.
