Summer Graduation

Post by peacherino6 » Wed Jul 01, 2020 5:01 pm

Hi.

I am a senior undergraduate who plans on attending law school in the Fall of '21. However, because of study abroad/COVID complications, I may not actually officially graduate until the summer of '21 (July or so), rather than in May. Do law schools care about this? Will I still be able to attend, even with a summer graduation date?

Thanks

Definitely - so long as you have the requisite GPA/LSAT.

You'll be totally fine. As long as you're admitted, you're good! You just might need to let your law school know after you accept in case they ask to see updated transcripts over the summer (since yours might need to be submitted late).
