Out of retirement to defend Julie. What's with the gender preoccupation? I don't get it.

A Bachelor's degree is an American Bar Association requirement.  Therefore, one cannot ENROLL in an ABA approved law school without one.  (And you want your school to be ABA approved, or else you aren't considered a lawyer and will not be eligible for the bar most states, despite your "law degree"...) 

You can apply without yet having finished your BA, as graduating seniors do, but you must have one and submit an official transcript showing your having been awarded the degree PRIOR to your enrollment.

I have heard some rumors that there are some schools that make an exception for people who have completed at least 3 years of undergraduate work, but it may be just a rumor.  (And if it isn't, those probably aren't going to be your top 20 schools, or maybe not even top 100)...

In general, the rule is going to be: get a BA or forget about it.
Actually, there are several schools that I know of that have a 3+3 program for "exceptional applicants."  If the undergraduate institution allows it, the first year of law school can count as the fourth year of UG. Basically, the UG institution has to agree to award a bachelor's degree after 1L. University of Idaho has a program like that and I know there are others. Possibly even Cornell? I don't remember specifically anymore. I looked into it briefly, but in the end decided to buckle down and get my BS so I could cast my net as widely as I needed to.

I almost forgot this one. My brother went to high school with a girl named Charity Muff.

I am deciding between Utah and Colorado.  I am a Utah resident but I am leaning towards CU for a change of scenery.  I wasnt able to make it to admitted students day.  What are your overall impressions of CU?  Is the vibe laid back? how expensive is housing in Boulder?  thx

To get an idea of housing in Boulder, which is more expensive than in Utah:

Yes, the vibe is indeed laid back and friendly.  I really liked the town, but I think I already said that.  The schools are really close enough in ranking so that shouldn't be an issue, but you will have that first year of paying non-resident tuition at CU.  I really like Reyes Aguilar, and I know really happy Utah alums, so I can't say anything bad about Utah at all. In fact, I know of nothing bad about it. For a long time it was my first choice, but we ended up choosing Boulder for lifestyle reasons.

My mom is a nurse in a small town and one of her patients named her daughter "Urethra."  And she couldn't be talked out of it because she thought it "sounded pretty."

Congrats! I remember you from some threads about Utah. That's really an accomplishment. Enjoy it!

We are moving mid-June. Just sold our house and that's when it closes. We have a lease lined up in Boulder already.  We decided we wanted to live within walking/riding distance to school, but not on the Hill.  Didn't want to be surrounded by undergrads.  As for residency, as long as you do certain things like get a CO driver's license and register your car there and register to vote, that sort of thing, you should qualify for residency for your 2L year. That's one of the great advantages of CU.

(Plus, since he works for the UO, I'll get a big tuition discount... a definite incentive)

...after you're married, of course.... because as we all know, it don't mean a thing if you ain't got that ring.

Ha. That's true. I have also heard similar good things about Oregon. Applied and accepted there myself, but husband didn't want to go to Eugene for some reason.  So I'm slumming it in Boulder. LOL.

Yeah, it was for me, too, originally.  Wait, let me rephrase that: I think it was always my first choice but my husband liked Utah. But now he's just as excited as I am about Boulder.
I didn't go to any other admitted student events, though. Did you?
