I just checked out on line to see if Novus, which I was considering, was ABA certified, and no, it isn't. My plan was to go the easy route (no snide comments, please) and learn how to be a lawyer by distance learning, pass the Missouri Bar and set up shop. But this is not possible through Novus, and no distance learning school has been ABA approved. So no, don't waste your time and money and hopes and dreams. Unfortunately, the only way to do it, at least in Missouri, is to do the hard work of a regular law school. Drat the luck.
