Applying to US schools with a 'General' degree??

Applying to US schools with a 'General' degree??

I posted this in the Oh Canada forum as well, but it doesn't seem to get as much traffic as this one.

In Canada you only need to complete 2 years of undergrad before you can apply to law school. In the U.S you need an undergrad degree - correct?

Does anyone know how it works for Canadians applying to U.S schools with a 'General' undergrad degree which is 3 years vs. an Honours degree which would be the equivalent to a 4 year U.S degree.

I am really hoping I can still apply to U.S schools even though I have a 3 yr degree.

What province are you in? (I'm guessing not Quebec or Ontario). If your degree is a bachelor's then you should be fine. That said, if you can stay in school and work some before law school, I highly recommend it.
