on the same note, there is a smaller private school in my state that offers campus degrees as well as online degrees. Would this be considered the same thing as a UofP degree?

I'm 90% sure their MBA program, for example, isn't even accredited. That said, the BA programs are regionally accredited, which means that the credits from those are at least, as far as most schools are concerned as "good" as those from any other school-you've-heard-of. If you get the LSAT score they want, the Law School will accept you. They might not like it, but it's a numbers game, and a good UofPhx GPA and reasonably high LSAT (for that school) will get you in. Guaranteed.FWIW: I am a complete snob when it comes to these things, and personally look down on any school with open enrollment. Nonetheless, I won't lie to you: do well in GPA and LSAT and the name at the top of your diploma won't matter. Hell, you could have gone to Hamburger University (which, is actually accredited to offer college credit), and they'll accept you if you've got the numbers.----My advice is that if you are an AZ resident, and ASU offers an online degree that you want, go through ASU.

$515/credit hour is insanity for a U of P degree. My local community college is $45/credit hour and will get you the same credits as U of P. Find a cheaper online program.

I need 3 and 400 level classes now. I actually found an online deree program at Arizona State University. It's still $385/credit hour, but at least it's a well known school, and it's cheaper than UofP. I've applied and am waiting to see if I'm accepted in thier BA of liberal arts program. Yup you read that right I'm going to get a BA in Liberal Arts....lol. I just want this thing over and done with, so I can focus on Law School
