Baylor- complete law school in 27 months???
« on: September 03, 2008, 10:19:03 PM »
I'm applying for the 2008-09 cycle and was hoping to get some advice from current students.  I'm a nontraditional student, graduated in '98 and have been working for 10 years.  I have a family and I am intrigued by the literature Baylor sends that talks about completing law school in 27 months.  I was wondering just how feasible that is, given the difficulty of the law school experience. 

Also, I'm interested in working in Dallas/Houston for a large firm and was wondering how difficult getting those jobs would be if I didn't participate in an SA program.

Is anyone here on this type of "fast track", and how are you managing it?

Thanks for the feedback!

If you are looking for large firm jobs, it is a BAD idea.

Large firms do the vast majority of their hiring through 2L SA's.

I just started at Baylor a week ago and I haven't encountered any upper-quarter students who are on the fast track plan. I would say that with the difficulty of Baylor just in the normal time of 3 years that 27 months would be almost too much to handle. The 3Ls who are starting practice court and the ones who are finished with it seem stressed out even with their summers off from school.

I would just recommend going the normal, 3 year path and enjoy your summer internships or firm jobs and hopefully you'll end up where you wanna be!
