"Finally, the fact that Boise, a regional legal market, is without an ABA-school or even a state-approved one is a rather unique situation."

Unique, but not alone.  Wichita, our largest city in Kansas, has no law school.  The nearest is two hours away in Topeka.  An attempt to start a school catering to working adults was attempted in the 2000's but it never gained ABA accreditation and subsequently failed.

So you've done one year at NWCU and plan on transferring to a California Bar accredited brick and mortar school?

Do you care to let us know why?  Was NWCU a test to see if you could stick with it before spending money on B&M?  Did you move to a location where a B&M is that you previously couldn't travel to in a reasonable time?

I'm not being critical (as some on here do).  I'm just curious as to why the switch?

Yes, that was a reply to a previous poster's comment comparing a hot dog to Mid-Atlantic.  For some reason, it doesn't always quote the post I'm replying to...

Except, at least you can get a hot dog from a hot dog vendor!

So, I guess he was not only the director, but the web master and mail reader...

Good writing skills, including grammar, are a big plus too!

It makes me wonder how this came about.  Did WM beg, plead, and bribe the ABA to allow this or has the ABA been considering a trial and picked WM as the best candidate to, I mean experiment with?

Wow, is this some type of A.B.A. authorized experiment?  The first few schools to get in on this type of program stand to make a lot of money with an influx of students who have been waiting for something like this.  If it truly is the beginning trial of something to come, there will be some money to be made for the next several years.

I agree with the general direction given by the other posters.

The Dean listed a link on the CA bar web site that has information for all the DL schools.  You indicated you are looking in to NWCU.  They have one of the best track records and it is a long record.  You may also want to consider Taft.  They have been around a while too, and they are accredited by DETC, which would benefit nothing in the legal profession, but may help with acceptance of the degree in general, federal financial aid, and employer reimbursement.

Why did you pick Concord in the first place.  Was it all you heard about?  There are quite a few out there.  Do your research as others have suggested and you will likely find something you like.

Finally, as a few others have mentioned, why did you fail?  It is also my understanding Concord's entrance standards are rather low.  If that low hurdle is too low, maybe law study isn't for you.  Some of the DL schools seem to have no entrance standards--except for the money.  We've probably all done bad on a test or two, but you should seriously examine what went wrong and consider how that will affect your study of law for four years.

Good luck.  If you would, please, keep us posted.
