I always figured it at 10-1 against going in but a lot of that is simply attrition of sticdents who drop out or don't get past year one. Paralegals and people who have a lot of contact with the court system are going to have a higher success rate, maybe 30% is my guess. By the way I was originally accepted at three law schools and attended an ABA school but canned it before the end of the first semester. I really did not like law school at the time. By the time I wanted to give it another whirl I lived 250 miles away from the nearest law school and had a job I did not want to quit, so distance learning looked like it was worth a try. But if I'd lived closer to a city with night law school, I would have done that instead.
