There are a lot faster ways to earn $65K a year with incurring far less debt, just get an undergrad degree in a high demand area in IT or medicine.

Your MENSA capabilities will also work against you in the law which has little do with logical reasoning.

I calculated the odds at Taft at being around 8-1 against completing the program and passing the bar but that figure includes a lot of students who never had much of a chance in the first place.  Essentially once a student gets past the FYBE, their odds of eventually passing the bar are at least 50/50.

They can sneer behind your back or villify you anonymously but you would still be a licensed attorney the same as they are.

Not if you had to work with "real" attorneys.  You would be viewed as some sort of charlatan.

An executive JD in my opinion is suspect. While Taft and Concord offer EJDs, I would question if those are actually regionally accredited degrees, the Taft one is for sure not.  And real attorneys will laugh their asses off at you when your back is turned.

A PhD is not what you need, that is more an academic degree. A Masters in Legal Studies can be obtained from an accredited online school like Kaplan University if you think you need training in the law. An unaccredited JD however will just empty your wallet and be viewed with suspicion.

Waste of time and money, non bar law degrees are a joke IMO.

The exams are finite, memorize a couple good Gilbert outlines cover to cover and know how to brief a case. Correspondence law school is essentially a reading list. If you want more trappings and bells and whistles, Concord can offer that. Correspondence law school is better suited to someone who already has had exposure to the legal system via law enforcement, as a paralegal, etc.

Not sue I follow your question - correspondence study would have more emphasis on memorization and less interaction with a program because of its design.

FYBE is always a 20% pass rate or thereabouts. The chambers/offices people are outliars since they likely know quite a bit about the law already.  Correspondence should always be a little higher because it consists of pure memorization which is the key to passing bars.
