Right. Back to this guys post. Is getting a law degree worth it if you work in a government agency?

I don't think it would be unless their are attorneys that work within his agency and he wants to apply and I wouldn't choose Novus.



I know. Read the rest of what I wrote.

Marketing for what?

I don't know how Novus has an edu domain name when they are not accredited.





Be proud you are living proof that marketing works.

Oh, and I like my resterants better than yours. Yours suck.

If you are an official university you will get a .edu domain name. This is a fact.

Strip clubs would have big breasted women not a restaurant.



ok, but that has to do more with marketing than it does about any value the school may or may not have. Seperate issues.
Resterants who want repeat business should have  big breasted waitresses, dosn't mean oliveoliver dosn't bring tastier food.

If they care about their image and branding, a real university will get the edu otherwise it is a bad decision.


That dosn't negate the fact that not everyone who qualifies for one dosn't have to get one.

Obtaining an .edu is a process that not just anyone can get. Look it up. I'm not the expert on DETC.




Not always true. I have seen many DETC schools that end in .org or .com
If you are basing it on address alone, you are not doing any research worth mentioning.

Hi,
I'm working in Alternative Dispute Resolution/Mediation, and I'm thinking of enrolling at Novus Law School to pursue a law degree. In my state, you need (minimum) a J.D.  to facilitate settlement confrerences with the District Courts in my state. I looked at NLS's fee structure, and they seem to be,"Fee Freaks!" Has anyone out there taken any courses from NLS?  Any information, and guidance you can send me about this school would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

A real college will have .edu in their url and will not use dashes. It is very unprofessional. Try Taft or Concord.

It dosn't have to make sense. Lots of people do it an ABA schools all the time.
MD not as much. Different worlds, different people.

A lot of people go to law school after a coin toss between it an MBA, and often don't really need either.


Other examples include people who want to be politicians, climb up in corporations, etc.

Ask yourself this to help it make more sense: Why would anyone bother with a joint JD/MBA if people only wanted the minimum? More on point to the question you asked why bother to get a joint JD/MD (many do) afterall you are not going to be doing both with that degree.
Yet, life goes on.


LincolnLover that is an awesome picture in your profile. Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard and does not have a degree. What do you think of him?

I think of him as a mathmatical anomaly. People use comparisons like that all the time. In reality that is the same idea as comparing the mega millions lottery winner to the average person. It could happen, it just won't. And besides Gates went to school to get somewhere then dropped when he was ready to start his dream company, not even close to the idea of working for others and hoping they will see how you are somehow better than those more qualified than you. Apples to Organes at best.


It wasn't like he won the lottery. He applied his knowledge. The lottery is all luck.

Without discussing the merits of online law school, I have already decided that's what I will do. I am planning on sitting for the Wisconsin bar. I will get a significant raise at my current job if I have a law degree. So having a substandard degree is not a problem for me. The question is: Which online degree is the quickest and cheapest that Wisconsin will accept? Alternatively, is there another state I should be looking at? Thank you


You can go to Taft and pass the CA bar then take the Wisconsin bar. Look it up.

Hi:

   I am currently a 28 (just turned) year old new father who has had some serious problems in the past (I would like to not get into in, but lets just say I did not have the opportunity to attend college).  I currently have about one year of school under my belt, so I am for the most part at the very beginning of my secondary education.  I am wondering what course of action would give me the best chance to succeed.  Unfortunately, due to being a new father and primary breadwinner (only one right now) many of the usual options are off the table.   For what it is worth (probably not much), I do have SAT scores above 1300, and am a member of MENSA.  I realize that this has nothing to do with law school, but it may help the readers grasp where I am coming from and what my possible aptitude for success could be.
  I will most certainly consider all options, but I am currently trying to decide between a couple.  My ultimate goal would be to pass the bar exam one day and be moderately successful (I would be very happy making 65,000 a year with a house and two cars, I aspire for more but am being realistic here).  My question (finally) is: what path will give me the best possible chance of reaching my goal?  I am currently employed full-time, and currently pursuing my under-grad degree in Tampa, FL.  I have no current work experience in the legal profession, and would not like to discuss my motives but just assume that this is something that I very much want to make happen.  Should I pursue first a paralegal certificate and try to gain entry into the legal community that way, and then finish my undergrad and pursue law school?  Should I continue undergrad and wait until I have completed to apply for law schools and plan to enter the job market with no experience in the legal community?  If there are any other suggestions that may help I would be more than happy to hear.  I am really at a fork in the road here, and do not know where I should focus my energy and assets.  I really appreciate any help, and look forward to any responses.


You need an undergraduate degree and to take the lsat to get into law school. Get an undergraduate degree that you can actually use like in something IT or Engineering related just in case you don't go to law school. It takes 2 years to be a RN. You can do that at a community college. Of course make sure your interested in whatever you choose to be your major. Your major in your undergraduate does not matter unless you want to be a patent attorney. Then you would need a STEM undergraduate degree. But then you don't even have to have a JD.

But each individual can borrow up to $138,000 in loans for college.

Don't worry about your age. The time will pass by anyways and it would be wise of you to use this time to get an education. You will be like 31 when you have your BA or BS. I know a guy that went to law school when he was 43. He is doing very well and barely works.

If your that interested you could start reading law books. I would buy Gilberts on Criminal Law, Torts, Legal Writing and Contracts. Then get a copy of black laws dictionary. Read them and study them. Look up outlines and learn IRAC.

Just go for it. ABA schools should be your first choice. Also keep in mind that you will make the most money working for yourself. No one becomes wealthy working under anyone unless your like the CEO of Exxon. Go for it and believe in yourself. It will be hard on you sometimes and sometimes you will want to quit but no matter what keep going. There is light at the end of the tunnel. Good luck, you can do it.
