Failure to Graduate Before the Class Starts?

Postby tlsshin » Mon Jun 17, 2013 3:14 am

So I guess I am being a bit paranoid but heres the thing.

I am going to law school this year, and I am going to graduate from my undergrad in this August after I take some classes in the first summer session. (My school has two sessions for summer; Session A & C) I am pretty certain that I will be able to at least pass the summer classes, but I am getting paranoid these days about not passing the classes. (Sad, sad, highly perssimistic personality)

If, god forbids, this happens, I have to take classes in Session C as well to meet all of the graduation requirements. But the Session C will not be over until the second week of September, and the law school I plan on going starts in the first week of September. My undergrad and law school are located far away geographically, but I can take online classes.

Should this happens, will my admissions to law school be cancelled? I know things are different from schools to schools, but I just want to know the general experiences.

If anyone have any information on this and thus help me on allaying fears, I would highly appreciate that. I understand that there is no such thing as a free lunch. I will pray for those who can share their experiences tonight before I go to bed, and trust me, my prayers do work; it got me off from the waitlist at one of the T14 schools.

Thanks!

Just don't fail the class during Session A...

I mean really, all you have to do is pass with a C.. The law school you'll attend couldn't care less about what grade you get, as long as you pass

I kind of doubt you can start law school before completing undergrad. At some point during the summer, we were required to send in proof of graduation. I think this is a normal requirement and if you can't fulfill it, that would be an issue.

Yep, you will definitely have to graduate first.

If your prayers work, then just pray you can pass your class.
