Free undergrad courses while enrolled in the law school?

Postby utopian_grrl » Sun Sep 04, 2011 9:08 pm

I read this about some law schools, but I'm not sure if this is standard...(sorry if this has already been answered).

Since full-time law school tuition generally covers more credit hours than a law student enrolls in per semester - and is more expensive than undergrad - is it possible to use those extra credit hours to take undergrad courses at no extra cost and no formal admission to the undergrad school? ie: 12 hrs LS courses and 3 hrs undergrad credit.

I'd like to take a few courses in computer science and German (just for fun) while in law school.

I'm taking yoga. Might as well take advantage of these opportunities.

At what point do you think you will have time to take undergrad courses while in law school?

UPenn allows up to 4. Alternatively, we can get a free masters of bioethics. Goodies!

I don't see how taking an undergrad course during law school is any different from someone taking time out for their hobbies. ie: playing the guitar, sports clubs, yoga (as mentioned above) etc. As long as you have time management and the subject is in something somewhat different than law and in an area you have a legit interest in, I don't see the problem of taking one undergrad class per semester.

NYU lets you into undergrad language courses, but 1) you get last priority when registering and 2) you don't get any law school credit for them.

Berkeley lets you take upper level language classes and count them for law credits, although only half the credits for which they're listed. You could also just talk to professors about auditing.

At Tulane you can take one class per semester at the graduate level, but this does not include courses in a lot of the humanities graduate programs. Regardless, neither the course credit hour nor the grade received in the course count towards graduation.

Don't worry about it. You won't have time during 1L. And during 2L/3L, you'll want to devote extra time to important things like law review, getting a jerb, drinking whiskey, and playing xbox.

Who gives a fuck, you're in law school. Just accept the fact that undergrad is over.

Michigan allows you to take undergrad language classes for credit. I'm not sure how many people actually do though.

Why do men refer to women as girls? Just curious. I mean, are you still boys in your mind or something similar? I don't get it. Not to sound ultra-feminist, but really...
