Applying to grad school before finishing undergrad...

Recommended Posts

Traditionally it seems that most undergraduates finish their programs in the fall semester. I, however, will be completing mine in the spring. Rather than taking a break after receiving my B.A., I'd like to start graduate school in the fall of that same year. Unfortunately, I'm a little concerned about whether or not that will hurt my chances of being accepted into a graduate school. My goal school is the GSAS at NYU. If I were to apply to this school before the deadline in February, would I still be considered for fall admissions, despite the fact that my undergrad will not be completed until AFTER my application has been submitted? Or would I be (hopefully!) given some sort of acceptance conditional on my successful completion of my undergrad? Thanks in advance for any help!

Definitely more common to finish in spring. However, for schools where it's hard to get into required classes and college takes more than 4 years as a result ... well, then, anything goes.
