Distance Education Law Schools / Concord dropout...
« on: July 19, 2011, 03:13:46 PM »
I started the online JD program this June, and found it very hard to keep up with the modules. IT IS A LOT OF WORK! Don't get me wrong, I never expected it to be easy... but because I'm a newbie...I found that it was taking me an hour to read and brief a short case. Therefore, the reading assignment was taking longer than "allotted". I have done online programs in the past and thought that this would be similar, but was wrong! Law School is a whole other world....and I have lots of questions. The school encourages a student to discover the answer on his/her own...and email the Prof as a last resort. The turn around time for an email response is about 1 - 2 days. Needless to say, it just wasn't a right "fit" for me. Not to mention, I have this big pit of uncertainty regarding the school not being accredited, whether or not I'm even going to be able to get a job after it's all said and done, and oh ya the big DEBT I will have.....
So, I sadly submitted my request to withdraw from the JD program today (after only 6 weeks). I'm feeling very defeated right now. I'm hoping to attend a traditional school part time 3 years from now (TJSL in San Diego)when we return from overseas... any suggestions on how I can get myself ahead of the "game" before then?
Anyone else out there been a law school drop out before... and found their way back?
