Online Law Schools / Santa Barbara College of Law
« on: May 23, 2008, 12:23:57 PM »
I was just looking at the CBA schools and found the Santa Barbara College of Law. According to the Princeton Review website 71% passed the bar their first attempt, and there are several mentions of santa barbara college of law alums on area law firm sites as well- so its not all solo practitioners after graduating. So it seems... Anyone know more about it???

Would you really apply to a school simply b/c it doesn't cost anything to do so?  In other words, I picked the schools I could see myself attending and some of them I had to pay to apply to and some of them I didn't...

I'm being a party-pooper though; sorry.

University of the Pacific was free if you applied through their website.

Well I wouldnt just apply only bc it was free... but if its someplace that I wouldn't mind spending some time for law school and possibly afterward and its free then I probably would.

well heres one... Widener Law:

"The application fee is $60.00. (The application fee is WAIVED for all applications received on or before December 31 or those submitted through Widener Law's website.)"

anyone know some more??

I have been to boston to visit before, but I have not yet visited springfield. From what I've heard is that its a moderately sized city but not as nice as boston.

So, I've noticed that some schools provide ways to apply for free... by waivers or free online applications...

What schools do you know of that have free apps??

I have been looking at the LSAC site at the Mass schools, and for "safe" options.. im probably planning on applying to New England and Western New England. While, New England is in boston and that location is preferable, Western New England is in Springfield. However, Western New England (according to LSAC) gives a median grant of $14,000 per year compared to New England's $3500 per year with very simillar tuition and living allowances. And, if I remember right from LSAC I believe the employment rate is higher for Western New England.

with a median grant of one third the cost of attendance, and an employment rate over 80% Western New England sounds like a good deal...

Does anyone else know about either or these schools? applied, visited, or attending???

So, we've all heard it... yeah you want to do public interest law, BUT you can't afford it,right?

Well, as someone considering this area as a serious possibility I found this article/blog a little helpful, maybe you will too!

I'm open to practicing in New Hampshire even, but boston would be nice. Looking to be in a city in new england, Conn, RI,etc so its in the region and I could be ok with NH. I'm hoping for a small firm or maybe public interest..if i go to Franklin Pierce I would go for the social justice program there.
