It depends on the schools in which you are applying. Cornell offers a program in which you can transfer during your junior year and start law school as a SENIOR! Plus many other schools will allow you say when your approximate (anticipated) graduation date is when you will recieve a bachelors degree.  So my advice is to find out based on the schools you are interested in to see if you can apply early (and have taken the LSAT) and state your anticipated grad date.  In these many such cases you do not need to wait to graduate. In fact in order to start law shool out of college (say you graduate in May 2004, you apply by November 2003 when you are a junior or senior anyway). Hope this helps Take it easy and GOOD LUCK IN LAW SCHOOL ;D
