It is for people who the school feels would be successful in law school, but their LSAT scores are lower than the school average...so they put us in a trial program and make us prove that we can handle it. Each program has its own guidelines. The program that I was in required us to take two second year law classes online, over a two month period. To gain admission we need to maintain a certain GPA. However, the only thing that counts towards the GPA is the final in each class. It is rough, and a lot rides on how you do on the final, but it is worth it.

So did you get actual credit towards your JD degree?

You have to prove yourself to get admission? Don't all the materials (application, LSAT, trascript, PS, etc.) that you submitted proved enough?   Please tell me you don't have to pay for it and that you get credit for it!

The trial program I went to was not specfically for people to get admitted to schools, or for people with low LSATs.  There were plenty of people there who already had schools (a few t14 even).  The program does offer placement for those who do not have schools, but this is just one of the many benefits of attending.  Also, there were low LSATs AND high LSATs.  I am sure the people who did not have schools yet, or have low LSATs (or both) truly benefited from the program as far as practice and placement go.  The program has many other benefits for the people who have high LSATs and are admitted to the school they want to go to.  One of the major reasons people went to the program I went to (including myself) is for the scholarship $$$.
