4) AVOID UNACCREDITED SCHOOLS LIKE THE PLAGUE. No one will hire you, or if they do it will be very hard to get a job. The law school you attend does matter very much even after you pass the bar! It's not like undergrad. I think CA is the only state that lets you sit for the bar if you went to an unaccredited school, but say if you want to move to ANY other state they will *NOT* let you sit for their bar exam, thus your degree is worthless.
