Online Law Schools / Re: Help me pick an online law school

He really finds benefit in attending the "classroom-style" classes, but they are scheduled for specific times in the evening so sometimes it takes a bit of juggling for him.

My friend is attending a DL school.  He attends classes live which may not be for everyone from a time commitment.  You may want consider that in your analysis.

Two great law schools and two licensing jurisdictions don't seem concerned.  Most employers will never even realize what the discharge means. 
Exactly what I thought. If two top schools are willing letting it go why would you worry about your future employer? If no one can tell you what the problem was back then it means it's not that important. I'm sure it won't affect your future job.

Job Search / Re: Jobs in the field of Law

If you apply for a job as a paralegal (and also get the job, of course) you could gain a lot of experience in the law field. Paralegals deal with  a lot of problems lawyers prefer not to so the experience you gain is good.

Since you only began to prepare for the LSAT, don't worry too much about it. If you study hard enough you'll get a higher score. Best of luck with everything! Where do you want to go to law school?

Hi, SF9119. I'm glad to hear you decided to retake the LSAT. Regarding your GPA, I think you don't need to worry that much, it's the LSAT that counts. You could include a personal statement to explain but I doubt it will be necessary.

Why would you say you can't live without loans? For me, the simple idea of having to give money back is giving me the shivers.

SaraJean is right. LSAC is very helpful on the phone, they actually care about their support system :) If you don't want to give them a call, you can write them an email and explain your situation.

Law School Admissions / Re: Recommendation from sister?

I would suggest trying to get a letter from a current or former employer or professor and if all else fails, maybe your sister has a colleague or another attorney friend who knows you well that you could use.
This is almost what I wanted to tell you myself :) A recommendation from your sister seems to easy, maybe try and get someone else to write it, it would be best.

Isn't there an option to contact them directly? From what I see on their site you could either give them a call or write to them (e-mail or a letter). Have you tried these options yet?
