I would say DL learners are well suited to be solos since they have essentially taught themselves the law and therefore already have the basic qualities a solo needs which is self reliance and focus. ABA learners are spoon fed by the law schools by comparison. You know what correspondence law consists of - reading Gilbert's outlines or whatever the online version is these days. Concord if it is like its parent KU, might even have live lectures online. Additionally, most successful DL students already have careers or are ex military or law enforcement and have networks and have been around the courts. So I agree most 24 year olds wouldn't be capable of going solo due to lack of life experience but that is not the DL demographic IMO.
