I did the same thing, 3 semesters and dropped out due to finances.
Now 6 years later I have been accepted by another school,
I guess you would have to show them what has changed, how you have learned and how things will be different this time.
I would help a lot to show some sort of activity that indicates a true desire to return, volunteer work or a direction you want to go into.
Goodluck, post back!
On www.externalaw.com we know that law students can use some extra cash,
As a result we have the following structure in place,
Paid forums (subjects), if you post in these forums with quality posts, relevant and on topic you could get paid!.
* you post 3 test posts to qualify as a paid poster
* you PM the admin (me) to point to your posts for evaluation and apply for paid posting
* You must be approved before you become a paid poster, so during this time either don't post or do so for free!
* you can only have 1 account
* you only get paid in the Subjects forums
* 1 upload in the case notes sharing counts as a post
* You post only on topic and only if you actually study or studied the subject
* Your posts mustn't be recognized as flood or spam
* You will get paid $0.10 (10 posts is $1)
* Minimal payment is $5 ( 50 posts)
* There is a max of paid posters, so if its full its full.
My name is Mike, you might have seen me promoting my site externalaw.com on here, shamelessly!
I am actually in need of some help,
What externalaw.com is trying to do is support distant learning LLB/LLM/JD students with their study load, of course regular students are welcome as we all work on the same subjects! We support each other and publish our findings. The forums are not used for small talk too much, mostly it is on topic issues and challenged we face everyday trying to get through the subjects.
We have forums, job search, file sharing etc etc.
What I need some help with is moderation, ideas and ways to improve the site and of course PROMOTION!

A lot of people study law as an external student, or as a distant learner. You get the same degree, LLB (hons) but you never go to school, meet your teachers or fellow students (although you can of course visit campus) you do exams either at a local Uni in your area, or at the British Consulate.
London College offers such an option, as does Nottingham Trent, both very old and respected universities.
Some people seem to think these are weird degrees, but in the work force this is most likely a PLUS and not a MINUS as it shows enormous dedication and motivation to study alone for all these years.
To make this task lighter and to have some sort of peer support, externalaw.com offers such a place. Of course all law students are welcome as we all study the same subjects, in fact! we could HUGELY benefit from your points of view, notes and lecture material.... AS WE DO NOT HAVE ANY!
The site has a file share section, movies, forums and lots more!
there is a forum dedicated to distant learning LLB degrees, www.externalaw.com it is a free and non-commercial community.
As a distant learner I think it is important to specifically take care of this issue.

I am Mike and study law at a University in the UK while living in Asia. Although this forum has a great section for people like me that study by correspondence it seems that the particular forum actually discuss distance learning too much.
I have created a forum mostly to help me with keep on track of my studies and perhaps to find some people in the same situation that like to share or study together online and make it all a bit easier.
Hope to see you on www.externalaw.com

I guess that is all true, finishing at 40, perhaps doing my LLM just to ensure some good opportunities. Thanks for the kind words, it is difficult to be 35 I guess, too young to be old, too old to be young.
