law school after 3 years

law school after 3 years
« on: May 21, 2006, 05:38:54 PM »
im currently doing my undergrad in canada and as you may know, it is possible to apply to law schools after 3 years of undergrad without necessarily having a 4 year undergrad degree. So i was wondering if there any LS in the states that also allow students to apply after only 3 years under their belt?

As long as you will have your degree by the time you will start law school it is not a problem.  In fact, I think a majority of people apply during their last year of undergrad (usually the 4th) with only 3 years done.

I know some schools that let you do a 3+3 option, but it requires you to attend the same UG as law school.  So, that probably wouldn't be an option for you.

As long as you will have your degree by the time you attend you wil be fine. I did my Ugrad in two years, so when I applied I only had a year and a summer worth of grades.

see thats the good thing about US schools - you can finish your undergrad degree earlier and save some years by fast tracking but in Canada a four year undergrad HAS to be completed in four years (no more no less) because during summer sessions only a limited number of courses are offered (and they are usually the ones that have a high failure rate during sept-may normal school) thus there is possibly no way to fast track

so what I was originally asking was that in Canada students are actually allowed applying after 2 years (meaning they are going into their 3rd year of studies) so it is possible in canada to start LS without a fully completed undergrad degree

but from your responses i guess thats not the case in the US and a UG degree is required 

thanks anyways guys :)
