Which Law Schools have Spring Admission? I know that South Texas College of Law does, but what other law school allow students to start in the Spring? Any suggestions would help!

Stetson University does, but I think this will be their last year of doing it.

Thank you...I just checked Stetson University and I think your right. They only had Spring 2009 Fall 2009 and Fall 2010 on the drop down menu when I was requesting information.

Oh looks like I may have to wait until Fall 2010 to get into a law school.

Thanks for all your help!

Whittier has it.

So does :
John Marshall in Chicago
Rutgers Law in New Jersey
Arizona State, and others.

There are so many schools.

I don't know if you did checked before (my apologies if you did). I would have done the list myself but I have to go. check it out.

Good luck :)

I just spoke with ASU and they do not have a Spring Start. I'l looking at entering as a First Year Law Student in the Spring of 2010 because I graduate July 2009. I'm taking the LSAT June 2009 so I can apply for Early Admission 2010. If I can get into a good law school that has a Spring 2010 start date then that would be great, if not I will wait until Fall 2010.

Thanks in advance for any advice!!

Charlotte School of Law has spring admission.

Elon may have spring admission, but I am not sure. Both are new law schools in North Carolina. They will be having their first graduating class this May.
