You better practice fully writing essay answers, also.  I suggest one a day.

You've already received excellent advise: check with your Profs to get their insight and make sure you are passionate about the law.

As for commercial outlines and briefs: I use them to make sure the work I'm doing on my own case briefing and outlines is on track.  I suggest you not use the commercial products wholely in place of doing the work yourself.

Good luck.

I do attend Concord and while the numbers you reference are not positive, there isn't enough information to draw any reliable conclusions.  The study of law has been different than any other academic environment I've experienced.  To conclude, or even propose, that these numbers reflect drop out rates, or prior education admission requirements to great a leap of logic to make. 

Most schools do not publicize their drop-out or graduation rates, correspondence or traditional brick and mortar.  So do not select a school based on these numbers.  Choose a school that has a teaching style and learning environment that compliments your learning style.  The only statistic that counts is how well you perform and if you achieve your goals.

Good luck.

I did much of the same research with five distance learning JD programs.  In the end, I chose Concord because I felt the teaching methods and material format was best suited to my learning style.

I've now finished my first year at Concord and do not regret it.  This past year has been one of, if not the most, academically challenging year of my education experience. 

Good luck with your studies.
