nemo, isn't your possible situtation covered by the ABA rules on provisional accreditation already? If you start at a school while its provisionally accredited school and graduate on time,you're considered the graduate of an ABA approved school even if the school for some reason loses its provisional status while you're enrolled there. (See Rule Interpretaion 102-10 @ http://www.abanet.org/legaled/standards/standards.html (Chapter 1).
I'm actually a NY resident. My main concern is whether I would be able to sit for the Bar exam (in NY). I understand that FAMU is not a reputable law school. However, I really don't have many choices...
Im confused by what you're saying. If its anything like other schools and their accreditation like, if you dont graduate within the time that the school has the accreditation or is provisionally accrdited, then your degree isnt shyt, right along with the fact that you cant even take the bar, in most states, not all im assuming by the link posted previously

FAMU most likely teaches to the Florida bar and nearly all of its residents get jobs in Florida. To move to NY to take the bar would be career suicide unless one of your family members is an attorney who will give you a job. You're going to have a up-category-5-mountain battle trying to get an employer in a distant region to hire you as a grad of a provisionally-accredited law school. Not saying it's impossible, but it's certainly unwise and unrealistic.
