Admitted to Law School, Can I Change Second Major to Minor?

Postby mrb520 » Thu Jan 15, 2015 1:45 pm

Hi everyone,

I am currently admitted to UTAustin and Duke. I have the option to go work for a law firm and make extra cash before law school but it requires me changing my second major to a minor. Would this be cause to rescind acceptance if I'm only a single major on my diploma?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I wouldn't imagine that's any issue at all.

It's weird to me that a law firm requires you changing one of your majors to a minor...

It's not that they require me to change to a minor; They will only hire if I'm able to work MWF, and if I change my schedule that way I can only finish a minor instead of my full second major. Thanks for the help!

UT and Duke won't care. Change away.

The answer is yes, with about 99.999% (repeating) probability that they won't notice or care. But why don't you call them and ask, so they can say "of course!" and you can sleep beautifully at night.
