Going to class can have it's downside especially with time considerations, but if you want to pay for a University of Phoenix degree, you might as well be flushing your money down the drain. If someone came to me for a job and said they had a 4.0 and U of P, I'd just say, "Oh....that's good..." You know? It has a slightly better reputation than those art training by correspondence programs. You can do better. I know you're busy and I can relate, but as someone on here suggested, can't you start out at community college? If you're worried about not being accepted into any traditional four year institutions in addition to the time concerns, community college is a great way to save money and prove yourself to four-year institutions. And yeah, I don't think most law schools will let you in with a degree from University of Phoenix unless you had awesome, awesome LSAT scores. To the poster who said he or she could get in the 140s without studying and went to U of P, sheesh, I got in the 150's without studying at first and part of that ability was my CORE curriculum for my bachelor's degree. By the way, I am not bragging because some people do a lot better pretesting before they study for the LSAT. My undergraduate institution is way at the bottom of the first tier. Quality of education matters aside from all of the reputation concerns.
