That Pizza Hut phone call's from a movie "America: Freedom to Fascism".  Pretty scary stuff.  Watch the movie if you can and decide for yourself.

Jeff:

I have talked to him but I think he got really sick and had to drop.  He pretty much said you study on weekends and whenever else one could find the time.

I would also have to communte since I live just outside of Huntsville, AL (Madison).  It's about an hour and 15 minute drive or more (depends who's driving LOL).  I even heard about people who carpool to BSOL from Huntsville but I'm afraid to depend on it and someone can't "make it" one night.  I would think they go over things for that night's class on their drive over.

I'm going to call BSOL this week and see what THEY have to say about it (I'm sure they'll paint a pretty picture while at the same time saying it's a challenging curriculum).

Two nights a week isn't so bad I guess since you have the rest of the nights to study after work.  At BSOL, you go 5 nights a week from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (if you pick that "graduation" plan..they also have part-time).  They have a different class each night!

Thanks for your response.  I would like to hear from others as well if they can.

(long post..please be patient)
I am still perplexed as to how a non-ABA law school student can work during law school, attend school at night, and find time to study, and get the equivalent law education that gets you an accredited JD.

How can this be?  I am seriously considering attending Birmingham School of Law, but I have to question what one is actually getting from the non-ABA environment.  If the education and exams of these schools are good enough to let you practice law, how can students be allowed to work a regular job, attend law school full-time, and come out as good as an ABA school that won't let you work while attending the 1st year??

You would think everyone would take the non-ABA approach then.  Again, if the curriculum in non-ABA schools is very similar to ABA schools (torts, contracts, etc), and you attend the same amount of credit hours, how in the world can working adults even find the time to study when ABA students are struggling to find time to study when they don't even have jobs (most anyways)??

I am NOT putting down non-ABA schools...I just want the facts so I can make a good decision.  I am considering a non-ABA school so that I can maybe work part-time and so that I don't graduate with a huge debt.  On the other hand..Birmingham School of Law is non-ABA, therefore you can't get ANY federal student loans AND you can't ask for a forebearance on any student loans you have going in.  PLUS, you have to pay as you go ($300 a course x 5 courses + books, fees, etc).

Anyone who can really answer these questions will be my hero.  Thank you in advance.

ps...Jeff @ NSL, I'm sure we kinda went over this before but I'm still confused.
