Law school apps: Working first semester of senior year

Postby msslater » Mon Apr 30, 2012 6:33 pm

I am currently a junior with credits of a senior. I have the option to graduate a semester early in my senior year. I am considering taking next semester off to work and apply to law school. Then come back in the spring and take my last 4 courses to graduate.

How would law schools view this decision? Would they be disappointed that I do not have Fall grades to send them. Would this hurt my application?

Any advice appreciated.

What would you exactly do for 7 months? Assuming you'd be taking the Oct. LSAT, that's one month of LSAT study and school overlapped. What then?

Just study over the summer, get your apps ready, and take 3 classes during the fall semester so you can still study during September.

Also, I'd take some BS classes in the spring, to raise GPA if it's lowish.
