Oh absolutely.  I'm just deferring to the ABA in this case.

It makes sense to try to get your foot in the door.

Whatever works

Oh wow, you're right. I just verified it:

Compliance with ABA Length of Study Rule: Standard (304c) requires that the course of study for the J.D. degree be completed no sooner than 24 months and no longer than 84 months after the student has commenced law study.

You helped me out a lot, brother.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP

General Board / How Long Do I Have to Graduate?

All Concerned,

  How long do I have to graduate law school? If I dropped out after my first year and then resumed my studies after 3 years, would I still be able to apply for admission to the Bar?

  Does anyone know the criteria for admission?

does anyone know how many years you have to graduate under ABA guidelines?  or is based on which state you're going to take the BAR in?

I attended Seton Hall Law part-time from 06 to 07. After my first year, I dropped out and enlisted in the Army to pay off my student loans.  I could foresee a worsening economy and dire job prospects. And with only a 2.9 GPA, I didn't feel like I would fare competitively in the job market.

I'm not sure how long my credits are good for under ABA guidelines. Is it true that you have to graduate within 5 or 6 years?

My other question is whether I legally have the right to resume my studies at Seton Hall. I'm not sure whether I would have to re-apply there or not. I would like to avoid it altogether if possible.

I'm really not sure whether I should transfer to another school at this point. I don't regret leaving when I did. I'm much better off now financially and don't feel as beholden to financial aid.

Any advice?

having a TS/SCI clearance is a big deal. i don't understand why it wouldn't be pertinent enough to include on a law school application. it demonstrates your trustworthiness and credibility.

don't listen to some of these people on here. i know from living in DC that a TS clearance is an incredible asset to getting a job

Roger Williams / Re: The WORST law school period!

while i was in the army, a bunch of the JAGs had degrees from Roger Williams. i'm not sure what their backgrounds were but i was surprised that the army wasn't selecting candidates from high tier schools.
