Graduating in three years?

<p>I believe I read here before that law schools didn't look favorably on graduating early. Does anyone know if this would actually negatively affect me?</p>

<p>Ok, I've posted on here before asking the same question. & everybody here seems to think it's a terrible idea. Honestly, it might be if you're trying to get into T14. On the other hand, for most other schools I don't think it's a problem at all and in many ways I think it's very financially responsible of you to not waste money on a fourth year of undergrad when you don't have to. </p>

<p>I can tell you realistically I'm looking at George Mason, Maryland, American with GW as my stretch school. I am not even applying this year (this is my junior year) and I've already received two fee waivers from two of these schools. I've talked to someone in admission in two of these schools as well asking about my graduating in 3 years. BOTH admin officers told me it doesn't matter - it only has relevance to your GPA because you'll be submitting 2 years instead of 3. </p>

<p>Personally - I don't understand this whole "take a year off for experience" thing. Maybe if your entire life all you've done is go to high school and then undergrad and maybe an unpaid internship? Many people have to work - in the summer, during school, etc. & real work experience will tell you - you want to get qualified as fast as you can. If the year off is to earn money - it should be a serious enough job you can get that's going to cover your living expenses AND give you the ability to save enough, which is difficult, especially if you have student loans. </p>

<p>I'm graduating in 3 years, I've never had to take loans and I've been working to be able to do that. Everyone in this forum is going to tell you to wait or do more school to increase admin chances, but you just have to ask yourself what you want realistically. It's totally possible to do it. </p>

<p>...just my 2 cents...</p>
