Good luck on your exam in October! I'm sure you will do great this time around... Also, I think it's really great that Concord has a program to assist you in excelling on this exam.

Hello! I am also starting Concord on September 4. I have read all of the reviews, complaints, praise, etc. I will admit that I am nervous, but I am also prepared for the challenge.

I wish you best of luck and look forward to working with you soon!

@Jayers20: Yay!! I look forward to working with you as well...

@jonlevy: You are correct very correct...

Just an update on my experience with CLS, I have read many reviews online about their Financial Aid Dept and how you have to pay for your books up front then get reimbursed months later, which is hard for many people and it was a major concern for me as well but I was planning on making it work but NOW you can purchase your books on your student account and then your account will be paid once your Financial Aid comes through so you don't miss out on your coursework! So it does seem that they are aware of their students concerns and working to assist... The fundamentals course are nice prep work especially for someone like myself who hasn't done any school work in 4 years... It's helping me get back in the swing of things so for that, I'm grateful!

Roald:

Thank you. I am excited, my son is also excited, he has grown up with me being in school. I know that this is a whole new ballpark as far the course load and the work that you need to put in to survive but I do believe I am disciplined enough to accomplish my goal.

To answer you question, at Concord, you do take several courses at once, I will post my schedule later this week. I am unaware of the format that is used for exams but when I find out, I will keep you posted.

Also, (in response to an earlier post) I should also mention that I did minor in paralegal studies in undergrad, became a certified paralegal and that plus my love of investments is what got me into insurance.

Angie:

The fact that I stated that I "do not have time" to go to a traditional ABA program was made because it's not an option at this point for me. Furthermore, I also mentioned this forum is if you have any positive advice or personal experience/feedback in this particular arena of attending law school. I do understand that it will be me and my reputation that will build my career as an attorney not the school that I attend as you've mentioned in prior post... Which is indeed fine by me, because everything I've done thus far has been based on my name & reputation and I have done quite well for myself...

I get it, I know the statistics, I can't speak for everyone, but I myself have done my homework, I know what its going to take to to be successful in my coursework and with this degree and I am up for the challenge. I am not intimidated by the statistics or my peers who will be attending an ABA school.

Haus: Thanks

Value321: I will most certainly keep you posted on my experience. So far, today has been a good day, I was able to find all my textbooks for my Fundamental coursework at the library so that's $200 bucks I don't have to spend, I'm smiling.

Oh no! I'm sorry to hear that...

I just got excepted into Concord today, I start on September 4th...

Do you feel like what you learned at Concord, wasn't enough?

Do they give you a score to let you know how close you were or do they just give you a pass/fail grade?

Hi All!

I just received my acceptance phone call, followed by an email informing me that I have been admitted into the JD program!

I am very excited to start September 4, 2012...

I will use this forum to blog about my experience with the school work as I have a lot of questions that I was unable to find answers to online so I hoping that I will possibly be able to learn and help others through my experience...

Background about me, I am 25 and I have a 10 year old son and run my own insurance agency so I do not have the time to attend a traditional ABA school... I did go to a traditional State school where I received my BS in Finance in 2008... I would like to focus on Business or Med-Mal Law...

I have read many of your experiences, and if any one has any positive advice, I'd love to hear about it...
