Thanks guys. Honorary status works I guess. Mabey I just feel older than I am. Kids can do that to you some days.  ;D
I love my daughter but being just under 2 years old some days feel like a marathon!  :P

I start Cooley in January.

Hi. I'm starting law school in a few months. I am 26 with a wife and kid. I worked a few jobs before getting to this point including truck driver with cdl and hazmat, military as an NCO, night janitor, ect.

Does that make me "non-traditional" too? I noticed a lot of the students on campus when I toured it looked like they came right from undergrad and were suprised when I mentioned a family.

I am just wondering if anyone can tell me why anytime someone posts good for Novus they only have single digit posts behind their name? Heck, I'm new and even I noticed that. I'm just curious why they dont seem to stick around to get a lot of posts behind their names.

Just make sure that it is at least bar approved and that you want to practice in CA. I considered a few online ones but decided to go ABA instead and start in a few months. If you must go online, then pick one of the accredited ones so that employers will see it as a degree to in case you want to work in states outside CA (as a paralegal or otherwise). Taft is DETC accredited nationally but Concord is Regionally accredited so they would be the best bet. At least then you can tell you boss you have a regionally accredited doctorate degree, even if not as a lawyer(or as) but its good to have a backup plan just in case.
