Law school without a BA
« on: October 26, 2005, 01:17:16 AM »
Hi,

Iam 30 years old and single mother. I am working full time and taking everning classes at UCLA for the last two year and half. I have read that some law school accept student who does not have a BA, but just have some school credits. Does anyone knows which school  does and what are the requirements ?

Thanks,
F

I'm pretty sure all schools (ABA) require that you graduate from a 4 year uni.

Sorry George, my law school research has not taken across either of those schools' paths.

Same here, until I had to answer the question, anyway.

I'm pretty sure on Marylands app it has a box for applicants with 60 hours undergrad and who are over 23 years old.  I'm sure for them to even look at your app you'd have to have taken 20 hours/semester and have near a 4.0.  Taking 6 hours/semester won't cut it unless you have earned a BA.  Just my opinion though.

There are some schools that allow you to attend after 90 credits at your undergrad. It is called a 3x3 program. However, in order to be accepted in such a program your undergrad must be willing to grant credit for courses in law school. These credits would go toward your undergrad granting you your degree. I know that the University of Nebraska has such a program. However, I am sure that you would have to have an LSAT and GPA well above their 75%.

Cornell allows for the possibility of taking people who haven't graduated.
