I agree with Mugatu. If that were the only place you got into then I would go and be prepared to work really hard. First of all, it isn't all that rare that a school goes on probation, but it is rare that a school will actually lose accreditation and not recover. Second, even if they do lose accreditation that doesn't preclude you from practicing within the state. There are tons of non-ABA accreditted schools that produce lawyers that practice under the state bar. It will be much harder and you'll need to work to get there though, as most people in that situation end up as legal aides. Finally, if you work hard, are near the top of your class, and GGU does happen to lose its accreditation then you can always transfer. Its my understanding that the credits you would earn at GGU while it was under probation would still transfer to an ABA accreditted school so why not? Ultimately, I am a firmly believe that it is never advantagous to take time off before law school unless absolutely necessary and I really do believe GGU will recover.
