maybe they could e-mail them  :D

i cannot see an aba-approved school counting a 56-hour BA as sufficient to apply.  some schools require a minimum of 90 hours completed in your degree for you to apply.

most schools require LORs from professors if you just graduated.

its not 56 hours its more like 120, its less classes but longer credit hours.

I'd say schools in the lower part of Tier 1 maybe. And since it is an online school, who would your letters of rec. come from?

 i did work for a family friend at his law office so she said she would write me an awesome one.

Yeah... I know you have to have a BA or BS. Maybe you should consider another BA or BS or some grad school stuff. Also your age may help you - are you a non-traditional, older student?

young, not a urm, just a white religious christian

only like 7 classes each 8 credits long. i did it in a year

your degree is only 56 hours??

i doubt that qualifies you for admittance into an ABA approved law school.  i thought you had to have a bachelors degree (BA, BS, BBA) in order to be considered.

it is a BA

No extracurriculars? even community stuff, volunteerism, etc. . . ? Myabe if they discount the easiness of your program. Also, good work experience would help.

nothing, just a lazy kid. i didnt know what i wanted to do so i got the online degree to fall back on and took the lsat.

I would say your chances are much greater in the Top 15-30 range. Depending on your GPA, which I assume is high.


my gpa will be a 3.9 but they can tell that it was easy to obtain, only like 7 classes each 8 credits long. i did it in a year. but i have no extra curriculars. i admit harvard, yale, stanford is out of the question but what about a top 20

They may view you different than those of us from traditional univeristy... may very well give your GPA less rank. Also, they may wonder why you choose to do an online degree (had to work? raising a family? or didn't want to have to go to class?) and depending on that answer may view you as a weaker candidate. Also, i must ask, do you already have the 179, or is it an assumption?

i said a 169.


what about a top 10-20?

Sorry... I can't read. I would say no....not with that LSAT score. Maybe study hard-core and retake.You need at least a 173 or (realistically) higher

i cant imagine having much luck getting into any top law school with an online degree.

why? granted the gpa that i receive from the online school is easy to obtain but what about the 169. also around this board it seems like most people think law schools mostly care about rankings, and the fact that my degree is accredited, eventhoug online, wouldnt hurt their rankings or help a school in the bottom of the top 10-20
