Which is why the legal professions has the  ABA to not let blatant scams happen.

They try to stop U.S. News, but people will buy into it I think U.S. News should rank NOVUS #1 I mean why not.  They might have 100% placement there doesn't have to be legal McDonalds is placement.  You probably don't have to take the LSAT to even get in so technically none of their students missed an LSAT question so since 180 is what you get when you don't miss a question that is what NOVUS LSAT rate is. Judge & Peer Assessment will NOVUS could pay for a judge to be on their board and they would a peer. Bar Passage Rate only makes up 2% of the ranking so NOVUS can overlook that little detail that test worth 2% consideration when choosing a law school. I can't believe the ABA would have the nerve to discredit such a genius formula.

I have more than 180,000 in federal student loans because I earned 3 degrees from different schools.  I can only get financed through private loans with a co-signer.  Additionally, I was in law school for a year during 1987-1988.  As a result, law schools in Florida won't allow me to even apply.  I looked for cheaper ABA accredited law schools.  None are as cheap as Novus.  I also studied for a year with California Southern School of Law.  I did not pass the FYLSX.  I did not have enough money to return to California to take the test again.  I don't understand it being illegal to list Novus on a resume.  Please go into further detail.  I am interested in being a practicing attorney for ego purposes.  I am currently enrolled in an online paralegal program.  The latter will meet my financial needs just as much as being an attorney would.  Has anyone ever seen the material that students learn from at Novus?

If its been that long then the ABA lets you restart the clock.
Its illegal to use unlicensed degrees since states dont want to encourage fraud.
If you can't afford to go to CA for the FYBX then how to take the bar? More to the point, how to do a 4year internship? Novus wont let you sit the bar, you have to find your own lawyer to take you under their wing(in CA) which Novus wont help with and you can do without attending them first if you wanted to. PLUS during that period you STILL have to take the FYBX as a legal apprentice.

Knowing all of this, how is Novus able to help you?

You all have helped me to decide against signing up with Novus.  I will just stay with the online paralegal program and sit for the NALA certification exam, here in Tampa, in 2011.  Thanks.
