I'm amazed the dean actually wants to speak with you. This is not a big deal, no one is going to get kicked out of school or reported to the bar for using a naughty word once. I had a professor drop an f-bomb in class and everyone just laughed.

I imagine you'll be told not to do it again, professionalism, etc.

Hey guys,

In the hypothetical that I used in a class discussion, I accidentally used the word "bulls@%t," but not at anyone, of course. Just in the hypothetical I used. But now the Assoc. Dean wants to see me. What's the worst that you think could happen?

Yes. I know it was dumb. But it was an accident.

If OP is out there and reads this, let us know the progress. He said three years two years ago. It would be interesting to see where that lands him now.

I would have said to skip the masters since it was in an unrelated field and virtually useless, but by now he likely has it 3/4 done or more anyways.

I see this is an old post, but really what all you should do for know is get an LSAT score. Once you have that you will know your options and can consider all the different options etc. Take it one step at a time and you will get there good luck and thank you for your service.

Good writing skills, including grammar, are a big plus too!

I agree, and it's especially true when it comes to taking the bar exam. Those graders are blasting through hundreds of essays. If you can't state the answer in a clear, concise manner you're in trouble.

Not really. Unless you are talking a bar review or legal writing class. Just IRAC and you could have English skills that would flunk English1 in Freshman year of high school and still get an A-

I think the seven points you listed are right on point. Distance learning and non-ABA law schools can be the right fit for the right student. It all depends on your goals, where you want to live and practice, and whether you are a highly motivated self starter. If so, I think it can work.

In fact many personal friends of mine completed their law degrees by working directly underneath a Judge or already practicing attorney.

CA is one of the few states that allows study in a judge's chambers or with an attorney, but very few people go this route. The number of individuals sitting for the bar exam via this method is usually in the single digits, and of those only a few pass.

Most people need the experience and structure of a law school (either brick and mortar or DL) to adequately prepare for the bar.
