Graduate school

Postby gokumax » Thu May 10, 2012 12:59 am

Hey everyone,

Sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum, but say I were to leave law school without getting a degree. If I were to apply to graduate programs after this (non-law), would they hold the uncompleted law degree against me? My grades aren't too good, btw.

Thanks in advance.

No, they won't think you'll affect their attrition rates at all nor will they think your failure to succeed at law school is in any way predictive of success (or lack thereof) at their graduate program

Bump.

My interests have changed and I'm thinking about jumping ship. I'm really hoping someone knows something about this. Thanks.

A school won't hold it against you, in my opinion. I wouldn't be too vocal about it with employers, however...

Really? Jumping from one grad program to another? Why don't you take some time off to work and think things through with a clear head.

Contact their admissions department and ask them.
