Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: william mitchell hybrid

I had applied in April, and was told that the initial plan was to have the first wave of acceptances to be issued in June. Then in early May, I received an update stating that they would make their first set of decisions earlier than originally planned (in about two weeks from that message).

On the 16th of May I received my acceptance, and scholarship. If I recall correctly, there is an article that stated that the ABA has approved them to have a hybrid class of up to 96 students, although I do not know how large they are actually aiming for the class to be.

From the sounds of it, in quick conversations with people at the admissions office, it seems that first round of decisions is not going to be the last, and that they are actively accepting applications.

I have recently been accepted into WM's hybrid online program.

Given that this will be a first for WM, I am sure there will be growing pains, but I am looking forward to it nonetheless.

I do not think that you will gain anything from listing your high school on your resume, even with the circumstances that you describe.

I suspect that the first real movements to a ABA approved distance learning JD will end up coming as a program expansion from some already ABA approved school.

Many of these schools have already established online course and sometimes even degrees for other programs. Converting these tools to classes for a JD program will not require a great deal of effort.

Congrats on the stellar GPA, I am sure that it will help.

Which of these schools have you received acceptances from?

You should keep in mind that you can likely receive a quality education from any of these schools, it is unlikely that the world will be beating a path to your door upon graduation from any of these schools. On the bright side your debt situation will likely be better than most of your peers.

What was your MOS?

According to Law School Predictor (, you seem to have a solid chance at these schools.

Con gradulations may be use have your Degree from H ARVARD ..Any way the rules states under rule 46 i can travel this route ,we will see.Right now with my busy life i can not sit in a class so we have to dis agree..RON A  BBA- MBA
There are indeed many things that you can do. Although, just because it is something you can do, it does not mean that it is worth doing.

I do not think that you will see much upside from earning another degree as a way of mitigating a low undergrad GPA. Most of those who have applied with a graduate degree under their belts report that their application cycle went nearly as expected based on UGPA and LSAT.

My suggestion would be to but in extra effort on the LSAT and do what you can to ensure the best score that you can pull from the test, then give it a go.

Happy Hunting,
