This month has really made me reconsider my options.
As a low-income individual, I am very concerned about the cost of law school. The nearest law schools are a two to three hour drive from where I live, and at this time there is eight inches of snow on the ground. I also have personal responsibilities which would be difficult or impossible to 'pack up' and take with me at this time if I would choose to relocate.
For example, Cooley is not highly regarded by the students which post on this board. But Cooley has a program which would allow a student to be at home (or work) during the week and attend law school only on the weekends.
John Marshall--Chicago is expensive, but has some excellent courses which aren't offered at all of the other law schools.
IU Law School--Indianapolis/Bloomington is much less expensive, but requires a better undergrad GPA and LSAT score.
The other law schools for my consideration are Kent--Chicago, Valpo, Notre Dame, U. of Illinois, and U of Chicago.
Of course, I have some time to think about it, and my circumstances might change for the better by the time that I have to decide, but I have just added distance learning law schools to my list of options. http://www.ncf.edu/CareerServices/Documents/PreLawHandbook.htm
