PT weekend program
« on: September 02, 2010, 01:05:48 PM »
I would appreciate any feedback from students participating in the weekend PT program regarding their thoughts on the time format, and how well it works in regards to integrating with full time employment.

Certainly doable - it is how I did it.  Balanced/juggled work, family and school and finished in 3.5 years.  Took 2 weeks off to study for the bar and passed - all of the scare tacticts that you need 6 months are bull.  It takes a toll on the family - if you have young kids I would not do it, you will miss a significant part of their growth and development.  Time is too short for that.

I am a cynical voice when it comes to law school - I do not think it a wise investment for many.  Would certainly advise against it if you have a family and kids or are paying full price to go to a T3/4.
