General Board / Chicago-Kent
« on: October 03, 2009, 11:08:27 PM »
I am still new and sporadic to the board, but just attended an open house for Chicago-Kent in the downtown Chicago there anyone on the board currently enrolled in the part-time evening program? They did have a person on the panel that was currently enrolled but the auditorium was full and I didn't get a chance to pick his brain as much as I wanted. I am curious to know the amount of homework I should expect to do, and if this is different as a first year student versus subsequent years. This particular college has a heavy emphasis on legal writing, or an above average(I think it is 5 semesters) as compared to others.

Hi there

I am fairly new and also pretty sporadic to the board because I have kids, a job and am also studying for my MBA currently. I am planning on applying to law school, though in the next year or so and wanted to see if there are any students out there attending a part-time evening program at Kent or any of the Chicago area law schools?

I am new to the board and wanted to find out if anyone is currently enrolled in a part-time evening program?

If so, I'd be curious to know your thoughts on the schedule in combination with your current job and/or family.

Your input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I am new to the board but have been contemplating Law school for a very long time. I have a BA degree and am about a third of the way through my MBA studies through Keller Graduate/Devry. I have two issues I'd appreciate some input. Up until now, I have taken the majority of my classes online, with the exception of the second part of a double major I took for my BA. I realize that after a lot of research, their are a couple if any reputable law school programs online. I have three children and have been able to get this far, but I know Law will be a much bigger challenge.( I also have a full time job)My GPA is a 3.8, thus far.

I have looked at Chicago Kent, De Paul and am getting ready to investigate a third-I believe that Loyola also offers a part-time program. So far, Chicago-Kent and De Paul both offer dual degree programs.

I am wondering if I should continue with my MBA studies, gain that degree and then begin studying for the LSAT or start now. I am also wondering if any of the part-time programs are less than 5 nights a week. At this point, it would be tough taking the train downtown for 4 years straight every night.

Any thoughts would be appreciated, and sorry for the long post.
