A review of the 3+3 program at Capital
The 3+3 program offered by Capital University is one of the best programs a student considering going into law can consider, and here’s why.
The 3+3 program offers students the option of attending undergraduate school for one year less. It is a dual credit program, which means that in the first year of law school, the student will earn credit for law courses and the final year of undergraduate studies.
A student must complete their freshman year in law school to receive a Bachelor of Arts degree due to dual credit courses. A student can apply for law school and be in the 3+3 program with any major; no prerequisite class is required to apply to law school. Also, the only school one can attend if enrolled in the program is Capital University Law School.
Personally, I’m in my final year at Capital University’s undergraduate school. My major is professional writing and journalism, and I’m currently enrolled in Capital’s 3+3 program. My experience with the program has been fantastic.
I arrived at Capital with a handful of credits already, and it helped me a lot to move forward. My first semesters were a little stressful as I had to meet all the requirements for my major in just three years; however, despite this, I feel that this added stress prepared me better for my first year of law school.
The 3+3 program is a tremendous boost for students looking to enter law school as early as possible.
I am currently studying the LSAT test for admission to law school. I’m not going to lie, this wasn’t an easy test to study – it certainly allowed me to sharpen some of my skills in logic, reading and content analysis. The purpose of the test is to assess how ready you are for law school.
I still have a few requirements to complete to get into Capital University Law School, such as submitting a personal statement, resume, and two references for admission. I also need to register with the Credit Assembly Service and submit a transcript. This is all done through LSAC (from what I understand), and it’s a very simple process.
I feel like the extra credit hours each semester from being in the 3+3 program prepared me better for the law school process. I would say it also helped me prepare for the LSAT test. The LSAT test requires good time management, patience, and content assessment. These are all things I learned in the 3+3 program.
I’ve interviewed Capital University School of Law with some general questions on the phone before. I had questions regarding both the 3+3 program and other law school related matters, and my experience with them was very positive and productive. They were quick to respond to me, extremely professional and kind, and there was a great willingness to help me get my questions answered in the best possible way.
I remember hanging up the phone with them feeling confident about my decision to pursue the 3+3 program. I think the 3+3 program provides a gateway to better preparation for law school, and it also allows students to enter law school a full year earlier than if they hadn’t used the program.
All in all, I definitely recommend the 3+3 to any student or prospective student who is considering going to law school to achieve their career goals.
