What happens if I drop out now?

Postby autocratech » Wed Aug 15, 2012 10:38 pm

Long story short some extenuating circumstances came up in my family and it's made it even clearer to me that law school isn't right for me at this time. We are currently halfway into orientation and classes start on Monday.

If I drop out now, will it show up to other law schools later on that I was enrolled and withdrew?

Thanks

Nope, you're good to go. You can get a full refund on any loans, too.

You can also probably defer indefinitely, depending on the school.

Good luck no matter what you choose!

Possibly, but I doubt it will hurt you if you want to apply later. Shit happens.

Make sure you formally withdraw from school in the required amount of time because they could still charge you for tuition if you don't

Good luck with everything!
