Suggest New School Specific Boards here / Empire College School of Law
« on: November 14, 2012, 10:58:32 PM »
I would like to have Empire College School of Law added to the growing list of schools mentioned. I'm curious to hear from anyone who has experience with this school, as its one that I have been considering.

Does anyone have any experience with this university? Their tuition rate is unbelievable at approximately $12,000 after everything is all said and done, or approximately $2,800 per year, so I'm curious to see if anyone has any experience with this program? Now keep in mind that I understand it's an online program, which is not accredited by the ABA or Cal Bar, but it is "registered" with Cal Bar as an unaccredited school and does allow you to sit for the Bar Exam in California.

I began doing some light research into a few online schools. I went on the California Bar website to look at the graduation rates for first time takers for July 2011. I then looked at each schools tuition rate and here is what I came up with:

University                     Total Tuition   Bar Pass Rate (7/11)

Concord Law School                               $40K                 28%
Taft Law School                                       $32K                 0%
St. Francis School of Law                        $28K                 No Info
Northwestern California University        $12K                 21%

Now I have only met one guy who was an 2L from Northwestern California University and he said he liked it, but he is the only person Iíve encountered who has attended this university. Does anyone else know anything about this school?

I'm interested to see if anyone here has attended Empire College School of Law? I know many Deputy District Attorney's in my area are alumni and I'd like to hear their opinion regarding this university?

Transferring / University of San Francisco v. Golden Gate University
« on: June 20, 2012, 02:08:07 AM »
So I'm weighing the options between two law schools. I'm a working professional looking for a part-time evening program. I am not a scholastic superhero, as I finished my undergraduate with a 3.2 GPA and relocating is out of the question. I have not taken the LSAT yet, but I'd like to in the near future. So I want some feedback regarding University of San Francisco v. Golden Gate University?

Minority Topics / Combat Veteran Thread (Sound Off)
« on: June 13, 2012, 02:17:35 AM »
I have always had a huge affinity for veterans of the US Military. I have seven generations of military in my family, and the last three generations served in direct combat. I'm always interested in meeting fellow veterans so I figured I start a thread for the 1% on the population who can call themselves combat veterans. Please take the time to introduce yourself.

Branch: USAF Special Operations Command
Service Dates: 2001-2007
Campaigns: Operation Iraqi Freedom, Camp Warrior, 2004-2005.
Law School: Undecided

So I have been considering law school for several years. Unfortunately, the only part time ABA programs are a 90 minute drive for me (one way) four days per week, and I own a home so I'm stuck and I cannot relocate. I have a Cal Bar school within two miles of my house that offers a part time program. My delema streams from the fact that I live in California now, but I'd want to remain here forever. I know the Cal Bar law schools restrict the states where one can practice, but I've heard of Cal Bar students practicing law in Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Texas, and Florida.

If Cal Bar is my only, I'm trying to determine if I should go through with it or not? Law has always interested me, and I have over seven years in law enforcement.
