William Mitchell / New Hybrid Online JD Program
« on: May 25, 2014, 06:48:55 PM »
William Mitchell has recently been approved by the ABA to offer a hybrid online JD.

http://web.wmitchell.edu/admissions/hybrid-program/

The inaugural class gets underway in January of 2015.

Personally, I have been eagerly awaiting for something like this for a few years now, and the timing worked out rather nicely for me. Last year, before I had heard of this new program, I had started taking steps to apply this cycle to more traditional part-time programs near where I work. When I heard that this hybrid program had been approved by the ABA, I happily applied.

A little over a week ago, I received word that I have been accepted into this program, and I am looking forward to the experience.

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.

Online Law Schools / Re: Current ABA Response to Distance Education
« on: July 17, 2013, 12:31:54 AM »
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 (http://www.lawschoolpredictor.com), you seem to have a solid chance at these schools.

Housing in the DC area is often quite expensive.

In order to keep cost down you will likely have to determine what characteristics are most important to you,, and what you are willing to compromise on. Good luck with your cycle and with your potential housing hunt.

Does someone offer a non-music degree in French horn performance?
