Post: Online Law School
Posted by Barb in Georgia on 7/12/09
Okay... I am in my 40's and have been considering law
school for a long time (20 years). I took LSAT 4 years ago
and did horribly. I have been in the legal profession
(paralegal) for 18 years. My Bachelor's Degree GPA is 3.69.
However, because of the low LSAT, I could not get into
either of the 2 law schools in Georgia that have evening
programs. One of them, John Marshall, even lost its ABA
So now I am researching the online law schools. I know I
cannot sit for the Bar in Georgia if I go to an online law
school but I am a CA native and may go back.
So, what I have found is that Concord will cost me $40,000
by the time I am done. Their percentages look pathetic.
They come across as some great online law school, but their
numbers say differently. I mean, they have the same status
as any other correspondence law school. What am I getting
I had looked into California School of Law, but they just
started in 2007 so they don't have a Bar pass rate and what
happens if they don't get another 5 year renewal. They are
$6,000 a year but what I like about them is that you have
to attend online class 2 nights a week for 3 hours. At
least you get some classroom instruction without having to
go to an actual class.
I am considering NWCU because of price and the fact they
have been around a while.
I finished my BS degree online and I am working on my
Masters in Law and Public Policy online (both at
accreddited colleges) but it just doesn't make sense to
rack up the debt for a Master's Degree when I know it is a
law deree I want and I can do that without racking up debt.
I do not work full-time so I have the time to spend
studying, I just want to know which online school would be
money well spent.
