Chicago-Kent PT?

Chicago-Kent PT?

Hi All-
Just curious of what you all have to say about the Chicago-Kent part time program. From what i've read, it's easier to get into and still a good program.

If it helps, stats are 2.4 UGPA (all calculated out by law school standard) and LSAT 171.
As for my sickly low UGPA, I plan on writing an addendum to explain (i've battled cancer, hope that suffices in their eyes).

Any info or opinions would be helpful :)

It's a good school and also easy to switch into the full-time division after your first year.  I think both divisions share mostly the same profs, and I believe a lot of the upper year electives for both divisions are held in the evening anyway.  Kent is especially strong in IP and Labor. 

With a 171 though, I'm sure you could get into the full-time division from the get-go though, and probably a host of higher-ranked schools too.  It seems like most schools care more about the LSAT, and you've got strong reasons for the GPA dip.
