I accepted a scholarship from Mercer School of Law in 1987. The catch was that I had to maintain an A average during the first year. I only got an A in Con Law. There was no other financial aide available at the time.
I studied under California Southern School of Law. I only got a 60 on the first try. I would have passed the second time, but I didn't have enough money to pay for the FYLSX exam, flight and hotel expenses. I live in Florida.
At Mercer we had to read 150 pages a night. At California Southern, 50 pages a day.
Right now, I'm studying to be a paralegal online. After I pass the NALA exam, I'll apply to be a Florida Registered Paralegal. I plan to take the test in 2011. To get a competitive edge, I also started writing articles on the law and post them on http://works.bepress.com
