I'm not talking about an admissions letter, I mean a box to mark that says "First to Attend"

If you are an attorney and licensed and have a JD, if you want you put the JD after your name. It would not matter where it is from.
I dunno about the first part, Novus is listed in a lot of states as illegal to use period.
I'm not saying Novus would win on the second part, but people
http://www.thesmokinggun.com/documents/celebrity/lee-im-spike-spike-tv have sued for less.
I don't see how using Novus would be an infringement and the guy is a T Jeff. grad:Not sure why you gave the link. I assumed he was honest about being licensed.
Name infringement? People sue for far less (and win) daily.
Using JD on a business card w/out a law license depends on the state and intent.All good points, but I was talking about the other extreme where you ARE licensed but not due to the JD and just happen to hold an unaccredited JD from a place like Novus.
1. What grads are lawyers - you going to believe Novus? Reading for the law? With who, their mother? Not likely.Are we talking staff or students? I don't know who is on their staff, but I thought I heard (somewhere once) that lawyers or even retired judges were somehow involved in it.
As for students, I don't know, but people do read for the law. There likely is at least one out there somewhere, and no I don't know who or where. And I'm not defending them, just saying that the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence there Watson.
EVEN IF they had licensed lawyers I would sure hope they'd use an ABA licensed attorney with experience. Be in it to win it, not to worry about people who already don't like you not like you more.
Novus is a scam though, not denying that. If you use their degree in many states you can get arrested. So............its kind of like a novelty life experience degree. You can own it, just not use it.
Serious Academic thought and question here related to that. Let's say (for purely academic purposes) that someone did sit the bar exam and pass by reading the law. They also have a JD from Novus. If they put "JD" on their lawyer business card is it legal to do so? Or would it be a character and fitness issue?

Anyone in the bottom 10% might get the message law is not for them.anyone in the bottom 10% probably isn't smart enough to understand the significance of it

Here's a suggestion - go ahead and take the LSAT. If you do OK then law school, online or otherwise may be for you.Yeah but then comes in the weight of what is "ok"
I think some "require" you sit it, but just don't care about the score.
To be honest I can't imagine how anyone with even an Associates Degree from community college with a 2.0 GPA in liberal arts could get below a 142 (which some ABA schools accept if you try hard enough)
Yes and No. They had grads (at least in theory) who are lawyers. BUT would have to be grads that qualified otherwise even without it by reading for the law (a few states such as CA allow that)
Its not much more of a scam than the accredited EJD deals out the there. I say that since unaccredited JD's in CA let you sit the bar, so its kind of like the unaccredited bar approved JD and the EJD had a deaf limp and lame child that they hid in the closet but a hand full of people still knew about.
Don't a lot of college nowdays have a "first to attend" type policy where if no one in your family went to college you get some type of admissions bump/tuition reduction or something like that?That's true, but it is possible to quantify the effect of URM status vis a vis LSAT scores. The tough part is that it varies based on whether we're talking a 140, 150, or 160 as your base.It always kind of bugs me how people who go "race is a social construct and we are all just humans and need to stop treating eacother different by race" still call people racist if they ask for that same thing to be applied to college admissions.
I think I heard something about them trying to get rid of "legacy" preferences too due to "incidental racism" since in the old days it was almost 100% white.
