Good points. I haven't suggested or at least I did not mean to suggest that DL and non-ABA or lower ranked schools are the equivalent to HYS and other very good 'regular' schools.My point has been that my school and schools like it offer situations that work for their students. It may be that we can't move to a better school, or our LSATs aren't as good or we have to work, or we have familys to care for. I do not expect my legal education to measure up to others. I don't have the time or the opportunities. At the same time, I don't need some of the opportunities that HYS provide. NSL fits my needs and supports my goals. I don't know, but I have read in many places that HYS and others have grave flaws in their programs. That's not my opinion. It's the experts and pundits who say that. If those experts and pundits are correct, there are parts of my education at NSL that will be superior to those schools, but you don't have an argument with me. Your argument is with the experts and pundits. I don't know the first think about HYS and the better schools. I'm not in a position to judge them. Any criticisms I've leveled against them are echoes of those experts and pundits.But I don't think it helps the discussion for some people to abuse those who are in less prestigious and unconvential schools, because we may be happy with our choices. These schools work for us. Will they give us what we want in the future? There's evidence that it will. It will not land us in BIGLAW in Manhattan or a seat on the Supreme Court, but only the unrealistically optimistic among us even consider such things from a seat in a night law school.
I noticed that one poster went too far in praising DL programs.
If you graduate from a non aba jd i think you can still be admitted to st thomas, miami's llm program, the tax llm is online, this will let you into some states the best way to go is to go the the rules of the state you want to practice in, many for example once admitted then you can go to and take their bar exam§ 7. Requirements for admission -- Applicants admitted to the practice of law in another jurisdiction of the United States
