Pushing back graduation date

Pushing back graduation date
« on: October 26, 2007, 12:57:26 PM »
I thought I would be graduating this December so I put that date on all my apps.  Now, it looks like I will need one more class to graduate. So, will it look bad that I am pushing back my graduation date (I will send all schools a letter saying this)?  Also, will it look bad if I only take one class next semester?  This will allow me to work. 
Thanks for any input.

Don't worry about it. People have to graduate at all sorts of times for all sorts of reasons.

Just have your diploma before you start law school, obviously.

Yeah, it shouldn't be a real issue... all law schools really want after you are admitted is certification that you have indeed graduated before law school starts.
