Urgent: Summer courses after 4th year??

Postby candy1234 » Sat Jul 23, 2011 10:10 pm

Hello,

I was wondering if taking summer courses right before going to law school (meaning, after 4th year) will negatively affect my chance of admission.

I'm taking LSAT on this October, and need to earn 5 credits (full load) on my 4th year. But if anything happens (getting unexpected low grades), i might drop and retake in summer. Is it possible? Or only ppl graduating May will be considered in admission?

Thank you!!!!!!

Thank you!

So you are pretty much saying I can take summer courses without getting any disadvantage of getting in law school, right? That sounds good! :)
Now i will drop the summer course i'm taking and study more on LSAT.. and perhaps take this summer course in next summer!

Thank you so much for your quick response!

I will take your recommendation seriously :)
just one thing; you mentioned that its good to take summer courses as long as I include them in the final transcript. However, if I take those courses in summer (just before entering into 1L), i will get my final grades about 1 week before September 2012. Can I then send my transcript to law schools? wouldn't it be too late?

Even though I do realize that those grades will not change the chance of acceptance, im afraid if law schools won't accept applicants who submit final transcript late.
