There is a law school in Massachussetts that does not require LSAT. I believe it is the Massachussetts School of Law. There is Birmingham School of Law in Alabama. I believe Nashville School of Law in Tennessee does not require one either.
I did poorly on LSAT but my undergraduate GPA is 3.7 and I even have a Master's Degree in Law & Public Policy. I applied at Birmingham School of Law since geographically, I can attend there since I live in Georgia. They even have a weekend only program which is quite beneficial. However, it is a non-ABA approved school so I will only be able to sit for the bar in Alabama. However, Georgia has a waiver for people who went to non-aba approved schools but want to sit for bar. You have to follow the instructions to a tee, but at least they give you the opportunity.
I went to Taft. The only benefit to Taft is you can actually get federal student loans. That is the big plus since most online law schools and even the non-ABA approved schools do not offer it.
Taft was not a good experience. Their teaching is lackluster and all the responses from the professors sounded canned. I mean, if I got a 3/4 on a brief, I would not get an explanation as to where I went wrong. 3/4 is only 75%. I lasted 6 weeks.
If you really want to go to law school online, try California School of Law. You have to actually attend class twice a week online.
