Re: Graduating undergrad in two years?

Postby SoPro » Mon Nov 14, 2011 7:45 pm

I graduated from my UGI in two years. In case you think it's relevant, I had a 3.96 GPA and scored 172 on the October LSAT.

I've talked to a couple of admission officers about your question before, and they don't seem to think it's an issue. The only issue that comes to my mind is one of maturity. I received my degree at age 20. That's pretty young. I graduated in August, but currently I'm taking a year off and working (as a high school coach and substitute teacher). You may want to address the issue of maturity in your personal statement.

So did you send out applications this year and were the results what you predicted?

@Paul
I was planning on going straight to law school if possible.

I'll be sending out applications within the next few days. I'm not sure what results you mean.

If you go straight in, it's likely to hurt you in the job search.

I would definitely hold off and get some work experience first. I couldn't believe how much work experience mattered at OCI. The issue would only be compounded if the kid is still the age of your typical college senior. Def wait.

That's awesome that you can graduate in 2 years. I wish I could have condensed 3 1/2 into two. Congrats.
