General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Missing School!!!
« on: June 08, 2009, 07:39:27 PM »
I am waiting to start in January. Have been waiting since I was accepted in March. I have to wait untill my wife finishes her degree in phlebotomy so that I can babysit the kid and they we have between october-january to move down near my school. I am on unemployment right now so its ok I guess. I wont have summers off myself once I start since I am on the 3 year plan with all 3 semesters including summer. What's nuts is some people actually take the two year plan! Insane! 3 years is accelerated enough for me. Some folks also go as slow as the 5 year weekend plan, but unless you have a fulltime job with it that would be too slow and I'd go stircrazy.

Concord merged with kaplan, they are now not only  nationally accredited by DETC (like taft) but regionally accredited too. The first online law school ever to do so.

Guys, I am an ABA student myself. That being said not all are "fake". Novus is, novus is fake and should be illegal. Taft is DETC accredited and if the US army reconises DETC to make rank and officer status than who are we to tell the army they are wrong?

As for the cry babies who need "regional accrediting" remember that Concord merged with Kaplan and I check with their accrediting agency, that means that Concord is now Regionally accredited. Accept it and move on.

So how much trouble are you facing for practicing law without being a lawyer? Did you tell the judge about Novus? If so why? You'd think representing yourself you wouldnt need to. Were you trying to represent someone else? Did you address yourself as a lawyer or attorney and if so why?

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.
