I attended Seton Hall Law part-time from 06 to 07. After my first year, I dropped out and enlisted in the Army to pay off my student loans.  I could foresee a worsening economy and dire job prospects. And with only a 2.9 GPA, I didn't feel like I would fare competitively in the job market.

I'm not sure how long my credits are good for under ABA guidelines. Is it true that you have to graduate within 5 or 6 years?

My other question is whether I legally have the right to resume my studies at Seton Hall. I'm not sure whether I would have to re-apply there or not. I would like to avoid it altogether if possible.

I'm really not sure whether I should transfer to another school at this point. I don't regret leaving when I did. I'm much better off now financially and don't feel as beholden to financial aid.

Any advice?

does anyone know how many years you have to graduate under ABA guidelines?  or is based on which state you're going to take the BAR in?
