Personally I don't see why it would a "bad" thing if later accepted into ABA programs. If an LLM let you in, good. As long as they can keep up (if) go for it.
I would support Novus (and the ones like it) for someone IF, 1. Its legal to use an unaccredited degree in their jurisdiction (as far as strictly for resumes), and 2. They were going to "Read for the law" anyways and ALREADY had it all lined up.
They give false hope telling people that they "could" do that (good luck if joe from the street with no connections) and list the SSA advocates and stuff, which is also largely misleading since you could do that without even a GED legally.
