William Mitchell / New Hybrid Online JD Program
« on: May 25, 2014, 06:48:55 PM »
William Mitchell has recently been approved by the ABA to offer a hybrid online JD.

The inaugural class gets underway in January of 2015.

Personally, I have been eagerly awaiting for something like this for a few years now, and the timing worked out rather nicely for me. Last year, before I had heard of this new program, I had started taking steps to apply this cycle to more traditional part-time programs near where I work. When I heard that this hybrid program had been approved by the ABA, I happily applied.

A little over a week ago, I received word that I have been accepted into this program, and I am looking forward to the experience.

I am a non-traditional student (old, working a full time job, have a family, and working on a Master's degree) who is considering taking on law school in a few years. I had recently heard that George Mason has changed their 1L schedule from 4 nights a week to 5 nights a week (a negative move IMHO). Is a five day a week PT schedule now a normal occurrence in PT programs?

Any insights that can be provide about the good, bad, and ugly of PT programs schedules and how to cope with them would be appreciated.
