LS Physical

Postby newyorkqueens » Tue Jun 07, 2011 9:47 am

Does one need to take a physical before attending LS? I remember I had to for undergrad, just trying to do some logistic planning for the next month...

Thanks!

WTF? Did you go on a football scholarship?

I was wondering this too. I also had to get one for undergrad (and I don't play any sports, everyone at my school had to). Also, are there any immunizations that law schools require that a person wouldn't necessarily be up to date on?

I don't think it would be inappropriate to ask your actual law school, instead of us. Might even yield dependable info.


That being said, the answer is no.

We had pretty big immunization requirements but they differ greatly based on the school so definitely ask them (they would prevent registration for us if we didn't have proof of our immunizations). I haven't heard of any physical requirements though.

Cornell had both immunization requirements and about 4 pages of other annoying stuff that a doctor had to check and fill out.

Don't underestimate law school hoop jumping.

Harvard requires a physical, and has forms your doctor needs to submit.
