Are trial program for peoplw who can't get in as regular admission?
It is for people who the school feels would be successful in law school, but their LSAT scores are lower than the school average...so they put us in a trial program and make us prove that we can handle it. Each program has its own guidelines. The program that I was in required us to take two second year law classes online, over a two month period. To gain admission we need to maintain a certain GPA. However, the only thing that counts towards the GPA is the final in each class. It is rough, and a lot rides on how you do on the final, but it is worth it.
You have to prove yourself to get admission? Don't all the materials (application, LSAT, trascript, PS, etc.) that you submitted proved enough? Please tell me you don't have to pay for it and that you get credit for it!
