Graduating early

Postby tpottebaum » Wed Apr 14, 2010 6:19 pm

Hey everyone,

My undergrad university is on the quarter system, and I am planning to graduate 2 quarters early (so after fall quarter of my senior year).

How should this influence my plans for law school? I was planning on just applying for the year after my senior year, and then working / interning / volunteering during the time between between graduation and starting law school....but would this hurt my chance at admission into top law schools? I am a second quarter junior (credit wise) right now, and I have a GPA of 3.956.

it shouldn't have any bearing on your admissions. realistically you want to have your apps sent out before new years your sr yr so you will have only just graduated any way. i suggest traveling or getting a job and save up some scratch before you head to law school.
