Applying to Law school

Postby thainess » Sat May 21, 2011 2:32 am

I will be graduating with a baccalaureate this DEC 2011 i'll be at the age of 20 with a degree in Criminal Justice at Sam Houston State University (ranked 22 in US and #1 in Tx for CJ i think). it took me 2 and 1/2 years to complete my degree.

Im also going to be taking my LSAT this Oct. I am reading that to apply to law school you must HOLD a baccalaureate. i am guessing i will be unable to apply till i graduate?

my main question is that if i cant apply till i graduate would Late December to early January be to late to apply to law school?

You need to hold a bachelor's degree at the time you start law school; it's fine to apply in your last year of college as long as you will receive the degree prior to your first law term.

Two and a half years seems short for a BA; how did you manage that?
