Which schools have spring entering classes?

Postby eesLSAT2017 » Sat Sep 02, 2017 7:47 pm

I'm aware that Michigan, Tulsa, and Akron all have Spring semester start classes. It appears they also have summer classes so that you can graduate in 2.5 years (so, if you started spring 2018 you'd graduate spring 2020). Which other school offer this start date? I've only recently become aware that it is an option.

Michigan does this?

I wasn't aware that any top program allowed a spring start.

OP might be thinking about Michigan's summer start, which isn't the same as spring start.

I don't think Michigan has a spring start, but they certainly have a summer start.

Michigan never had a spring start, to my knowledge. They had summer start for a long time, but this is the last summer class. So, neither of these things applies to Michigan.

Whoops, yeah, summer start on Michigan. Any other spring starts?

Probably not at any reputable schools. The first year is highly structured, so it wouldn't make much sense to allow flexible start times.

No, its not. Any school with spring start is just using it as a money grab.

Eh, a third of it's class didn't find legal employment.

Better than some, still not desirable.
