I chose Mid-Atlantic because my primary goal is to have an encyclopedic knowledge of the law as economically as possible. Mid-Atlantic provides that opportunity. Since I have already taken the FYLSE once, Mid-Atlantic allows me to go all the way through without having to worry about when I should take the FYLSE again. There are some students, however, who are simply reading and providing a summary of each Gilbert outline without reading the cases cited in each of the volumes. That doesn't make sense to me. At the present time, all online law school degrees are considered second class. Why have a second class degree with no substantial knowledge of the law to back it up?
Mid-Atlantic also gives me the opportunity to write a book of court opinions and statutes, in California, on domestic violence. This will give any lawyer synthesized court opinions all in one place.
If all you care about is the pursuit of knowledge, with the guarantee that sometime in the future your Mid-Atlantic final project will be recognized by the legal community, then Mid-Atlantic is for you.
It is just my opinion, but I don't think that earning a J.D. from Mid-Atlantic by reading the Gilbert volumes alone is a good idea. Mid-Atlantic is an excellent supplement for someone with an LLB because it is based on American law. And, at $1500.00, the price is right.
