Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / UMUC then Law School?
« on: November 05, 2011, 01:31:44 PM »
I am currently in the Navy. Over the past three years I have been working on my degree in accounting. I received my associates in business admin with a 3.79GPA from the College of Southern Maryland. I am now attending ( or participating online) University Maryland University College. They are regionally accredited and a member of Maryland's school system.

I have about 1.5 years left in the Navy and I was considering law school after I finish the remaining 30 credits towards my undergrad. My main concern is not my GPA or my LSAT but where I am going to get my undergrad. Will a T14/ Tier 1 (Maryland) discredit my application because I went to UMUC? Will any soft factors ( Veteran, Sailor of the Year, Honor Cordon 2009 Presidential Inauguration, Official Maryland Citation Letter, etc.) help negate any misgivings the admissions panel may have?

I want to go into Business/ Corp. Law and I have to stick around the Maryland/ D.C. area due to my wife's teaching job.
