Job Search / Re: Any Single Moms/ Dads Attending Part-Time Law Students???

Most Americans without advanced degrees have to work as much overtime as possible to pay the bills.

RN's are a GREAT example of that. So, if we are doing it by how much "free time" she will gain or lose, seems like semantics.

They only have to work overtime, if they live beyond their means. There is no reason for a profession that makes $20.00+ an hour to HAVE to work overtime.

Well, I wouldn't call it "my school" just yet.  ;)

But this is the link to the class schedules at the school I hope to be admitted to.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Why I picked an unaccredited law school

My question is, if anyone knows anyone that graduated from this school and then was able to sit for the bar in a different state?

Well to answer my own question, researching, looks like there was a recent case where this one TN attorney took it to KY's Supreme Court after he was denied to sit for the KY bar after graduating from Nashville School of Law.

I say this because your LSAT indicates that you have the intellectual potential to succeed, but your GPA indicates a lack of motivation and discipline. I'm not saying this to be a jerk, it's just something you need to consider before dropping a ton of time and money on law school. You will need to recalibrate your entire approach to studying and time management if you want to succeed. 

Thank you for the advice. Like I said before my cumulative GPA is not my degree GPA. There are numerous hiccups from when I first attended college close to ten years ago, as opposed to when I finally graduated last year. There is almost a gap of 7 years.

My transcript reflects an uphill evolution and not a down-whirl spiral towards the more 'difficult', senior classes.


And the night school that I will be attempting to go to only meets two nights a week, it is geared towards working adults.

Law School Admissions / Admissions Index - Auto Matrix
« on: October 31, 2015, 04:41:03 PM »
Yes, I tried to figured out the Admissions Index number for a certain school and ended up with a number that has a decimal.

Are the numbers rounded up when reported to the schools, since I was informed by the admissions counselor of the school when they receive the Index number that decimals aren't included?

Thanks for the optimism...I was seriously concerned that the GPA would hold me back.


And the only reason, I mention the 'non-traditional' aspect, is that I would have to attend a school that has a part time night program. Not being able to work, isn't an option at this point.

Choosing the Right Law School / 2.05 GPA/163 LSAT?

What are my chances to being accepted? I'm a non-traditional student, so it is ideal for me to go to one of the night, part-time schools.

I was looking at Nashville School of Law as the tuition is only 5K a year. Geographically, I am not limited and willing to move.

My GPA can be explained, from when I first graduated high school over ten years ago, didn't take college seriously, changed my major three times, and didn't finish. Fast forward a decade, I went back to school retook numerous classes and finished school. Unfortunately it seems the cumulative GPA is what matters, which is a 2.05 and not the degree GPA which is a 2.90. I've also worked since I was 16 even through college, currently work as Parole Officer, and am considered a minority.

What is everyone's thoughts?
