Gould implements fast track to law school

first_imgThe USC Gould School of Law is implementing a new program next fall that will allow select students to complete their undergraduate and law school studies over the course of six years.The program, known as 3+3, puts select students on a fast track toward law school. USC students interested in 3+3 can apply during their junior year and, upon acceptance, enroll in Gould during their senior year.Their senior year would then consist of graduate studies, and at the end of that year, the students would earn their bachelor’s degree.Following graduation, after two more years of law school, they would earn their law degree.By participating in this program, students are not required to take the LSAT for admittance.The program is open to applicants of all majors, but is quite selective. Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.8, as well as strong faculty recommendations and numerous writing samples.Additionally, as students accepted into the program start their law school course load in their senior year, applicants must complete their major requirements by the end of their junior year.Applications will be available starting September 1 for the fall 2015 semester.Chloe Reid, associate dean for admissions and financial aid at Gould, told USC News that 3+3 is for the student who “know they want to pursuer a legal career from early in their education, and who are ready for graduate-level work in their senior year.”The Dean of Gould, Robert K. Rasmussen, told USC News that the program is indicative of the law school’s continued innovation in their education methods.“Law schools know that they need to be creative and forward thinking when it comes to legal education,” he said. “We are extremely excited to offer this program to Trojans who want to continue their academic careers here.last_img read more


first_imgMANCHESTER UNITED (4-3-3)DE GEA, DARMIAN, SMALLING, BLIND, SHAW, SCHNEIDERLIN, CARRICK, DEPAY, MATA, ROONEY, YOUNGTOTTENHAM HOTSPUR (4-2-3-1)KANE, CHADLI, ERIKSEN, LAMELA, MASON, BENTALEB, ROSE, VERTONGHAN, WIMMER, DIER, LLORISThis is first game of the Barclays Premier League season; the Old Trafford game kicks off at 12:45BST to begin the exciting PL marathon.It is also a huge season for both clubs with Manchester United hoping to improve on fourth place last term – when they finished 17 points adrift of winners Chelsea – and Tottenham (who finished fifth and a massive 23 points behind the Blues) desperate to break back into the top four of the Barclays Premier League.Spurs will be hopeful of improving on a record of just one defeat (and three draws) in their last six home and away league games against the Red Devils.And United boss Louis van Gaal will not need prompting that he began his league career at Old Trafford on the opening day of last season with a shocking 2-1 reverse against Swansea City. Indeed, that was United’s first opening-day defeat since 1972.United have been busy in the summer, signing winger Memphis Depay (PSV Eindhoven), Torino right-back Matteo Darmian, midfielders Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin, from Bayern Munich and Southampton respectively, and Sampdoria goalkeeper Sergio Romero. Most should be involved against a Spurs side that were keen on Schneiderlin last season.United are without Marouane Fellaini, who is banned after receiving a red card against Hull last season. They also give tests to Marcos Rojo, Javier Hernandez and Anders Lindegaard, while Angel Di Maria left United on Wednesday for Paris St-Germain.Spurs signed Cologne’s Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier of Burnley and Toby Alderweireld, who spent last season on loan at Southampton before moving to White Hart Lane permanently from Atletico Madrid.last_img read more
