Well, I decided not to take the online route because I got an acceptance letter from the state-accredited school near my house (Lincoln Law School). This school was my first choice and for awhile there I didn't think they were going to let me in. Lincoln is an excellent law school and since I have no intention of leaving California, an ideal place for me to lean the law.
But while researching alternatives such as Concord, WHT, and ALU, I gained some respect for these schools and the quality of their programs. I would encourage anyone who has no option but to attend one of these schools, to give them serious consideration. They are valid schools and have their place. Not everyone wants to work for a big, prestigious law firm or run up serious debt. Not everyone who wants to go to law school is within the age range where attending an ABA school would provide the most benefit.
So bobkoff, if ALU works for you based on your circumstances, go for it. Just remember, it doesn't matter what law school you go to, it is up to you to learn the law and pass the Bar. Good luck!
