Graduate College in 3 Yrs and Not Taking Time Off

Postby gnotuy1 » Mon Jul 31, 2017 1:14 am

Anyone graduate college in 3 years and applied during your third year (i.e. not take any time off)?

Did you have any issues with only 4 semesters of grades under your belt at the time you applied? Did law schools request Fall grades?

I'm sure people have done it. You probably shouldn't do it, but I doubt that it'll have an appreciable impact on your application.

Buddy of mine did his undergrad in 2.5 years and will be going straight in to a T6 law school this fall. It's certainly possible--just make sure it's what you want.

I did not do this, but I don't see why only having 4 semesters of grades would hurt you - your overall GPA at time of application is all that's really going to matter. As for Fall grades, I doubt a school will request them from you, but I think it is pretty common to send those grades (if not already accepted) when you get them.

I did this and it didn't seem to have any impact on my cycle other than possibly in one of my interviews. FWIW schools did request fall grades and quite a few of my acceptances came in the week after my updated transcript was processed (despite having applied in August). Clearly anecdotal and also doesn't mean that it actually had an effect on my outcomes, just maybe that it delayed decisions.
