Online Law Schools / University of London law degree?
« on: May 27, 2010, 09:00:36 PM »
Any Ameicans on here receive a bachelors of Law from the University of London and allowed any of the state bars in America? I checked it out and their online law degree is only 1,500.00 a year. Sounds too good to be real. However, I checked out their curruculim and there is no "legal writing" class. How are we suppose to learn how to write like an attorney if they don't make us take legal writing? Am I overlooking something here? Also, I'm concerned that their laws are different than American laws, which could possibly cause a problem with passing the state bars. Anybody in the same boat?

Heres a hint for you  ;) ABA Law schools will let you in with a low 120 LSAT score if they didn't fill up all their seats and they have room. They would rather have your $150,000.00 for that one seat, then let it go empty. You have to keep bothering them even after you get your denial letter, to let them know you're still interested in attending. You always have the right to appeal their decision. Even if the school policy is not to allow anybody in below a 150 LSAT, they don't go by that. They just had to put that there so they don't look desperate.

I have a friend who attended a T3 law school with a low LSAT in the 120's. He also graduated at the top of his class. 

I have another friend who had a 172 LSAT score and tried 4 years in a row to get into a T3 law school in the town he lived in. He wasn't willing to move, so he had to attend that one school because he had a family. The school refused to allow him in.

Hello Everyone...
I have a low LSAT score.     ???

If you speak fluent spanish, then you can go to an ABA approved law school in Puerto Rico with a low LSAT score of 120.

Whittier is a strange law school. They don't offer criminal law the first semester year like other law schools do. The acting director of admissions Tom McColl is very defensive and hostile in his conversations and does not like to answer questions to prospective students. He is very secretative about the law school. He just recently graduated Whittier himself and it appears that Whittier was so hard up for a director of admissions, they hired Tom McColl right fresh out of law school without any experience. He has terrible customer service skills. He is rude, mean and just a nasty horrible person. Tom McColl is a glimpse into the future of how Whittier law school will treat you if you decide to become a student there; they will treat you bad with no respect. Choose another law school.

Don't retake it. Just apply to the schools you want. If they need the money and have seats left, then they'll let you in.

Retake LSAT and reapply next year instead.

Whittier won't admit you with a LSAT score below 155, so I don't think the poster is going to Whittier because of their low LSAT.

hello allaboutlydia, I have to correct you due to the fact that you are wrong. You said below that Whittier does not accept students without a bachelors degree. You are wrong. Whittier does in fact accept students withouta  bachelors degree. Here is the link to the facts taken from whittier's website itself.
Also, I am going to repost what you posted below. You said "Please research your facts before posting inaccurate information." There you go, maybe you should do your own research before you post inaccurate information.  ;)

I don't anything about Cooley but it's untrue that Whittier accepts students without degrees. You must have a degree and have taken the LSAT to apply and get accepted to Whittier.  There was no scandal involving dismissing most of the student body.  Please research your facts before posting inaccurate information.  Now for some facts:

1.  Whittier is the oldest fully accredited ABA law schools in Orange County
2.  More than 80% of Whittier Grads have passed the bar in 2008
3.  Whittier Grads have the highest starting salary of OC law schools
4.  Here's a list of firms that have hired Whittier graduates:

Which law school is harder? Cooley or Whittier? I heard Cooley is a hard law school. I haven't heard anything about Wittier. They both accpet students without a bachelors degree. They are both ABA approved. They both require the LSAT. They are both $35,000.00 a year. So they are both pretty much the same except the professors. Which one is harder?

Can anybody add to my list of ABA law schools which accept students without a bachelors degree?


1. Cooley - Michigan
2. Whittier - California
3. La Verne - Ontario California
