Again, thank you so much everyone.  If I do choose to go to NESL I will have to quit my job sooner or later. It is not practice to drive every day to Boston.  You all right UMass make complete sense to me.  I have sign up for the summer class at UMass so I will have a one less class in the summer.

I have one more question, while I will be taking summer class at the UMass, this will give me opportunity to explore more about law school.  I have an option to quit the Law School after summer class and prior to the orientation.  Do you all think I should paid $600 to NESL to hold a seat for me, just in case?  This way I will have an option in August if something didnít work out at the UMass?  Today is the last day to make payment at the NESL. :-\

Thank you so much for all of your responds.  I am a CPA and have almost 7 years of experience in taxation.  I want to specialize in taxation.

Here are my analyses:

UMass Dartmouth Evening Division:

Provisional ABA Accredited.
Tuition is $25000 cheaper than NESL.
Only 10 minutesí away from my work.
They have a great transitional to Law School program.  I can take one class in this summer prior to start the Law School and I will have a less load on my first semester.
ONLY OFFER ONE CLASS IN TAXATION.

New England Law | Boston Evening Division:

Fully ABA Accredited.
Coupe hours commute. 
Reputation is lot better than UMass Dartmouth.
OFFER ALMOST HALF DOZEN OF CLASSES IN TAXATION WITH TAX CLINIC.

I got accepted into New England School of Law and UMass Dartmouth School of Law.  UMass recently received provisional ABA accreditation.  I am planning to attend part-time evening program. 

UMass is very close to my work and lot cheeper then NESL.

NESL has a better taxation program.

Thank you so much for all of your inputs.
