Go to a regular college.
A lot of universities have evening programs. I'd be surprised if your local universities do not.
APUS also operates American Military University. A good friend of mine was accepted to William and Mary with an AMU BS and great LSAT score. I think the latter carried more weight than the former.Good Luck.
tito_99,For what it is worth, I am an someone who is merely considering law school, my undergrad degree is from Strayer University, not prestigious in any way shape or form. It was the 11th college/university that I attended in pursuit of my BS over the course of 16 years. I chose Strayer because they were situated near where I lived and worked and had a program flexible enough to help me take the big mess of transcripts that I had and apply them to a degree in two years of part-time study. Earning the degree helped me in my primary career (IT/InfoSec) as my employer felt that I was now worth 15% more then before I had the degree. Despite this I felt disappointed in the way that I had wrapped things up and the degree that I received.I decided that I wanted an additional degree, from a more (positively) recognizable educational institution, but at the same time I was unwilling to walk away from my career. So I started looking for respected schools that had programs geared towards working adults that were either in the DC region or that had means of offering courses to those not physically nearby for a lion's share of the degree program. My short list came down to Johns Hopkins, George Washington, Columbia, and Harvard. The first two being near DC, the other two had on-line offerings. After looking them over, contacting faculty & students, and considering various pros and cons that stood out to me, I chose Harvard (specifically Harvard's Extension School for a Masters (ALM) degree in Information Technology).This degree requires twelve course, one of them must be in person at the campus in Cambridge, MA. The path that I have chosen has lead to three classes in person, I am currently in the last few weeks of this third and final in residence course. Two of these course I have flown up for class mid-day, attended the class at night, and then flown back home the following morning, the other course was a J-term course, which I rented a room for three weeks, took vacation time from work and stayed near campus.While working on this degree I have become more aware of how much impact legal matters have in the InfoSec world, which has lead me to consider pursing a JD. Over the last two years or so, I have reached out to speak with members of the admissions teams at some of the DC area law schools with PT programs, as well as students who are attending these schools. Some of my areas of concern are the relatively poor performance when I started school back in early 90s and a degree from a non-prestigious school. Most of the advice that I received was of a similar nature. The poor performance early on would hurt some as it lead to a lower overall GPA (~3.1), but the overall improving trend, and a strong finish (last 13 courses came in at over 3.9) would at least be noted. As for the school that I graduated from, no one seem particular bothered by it, albeit no one was particularly excited about it either, I suspect that the same would said of the school that you are attending.I would like to take a moment to plug Harvard Extension School (HES) as a possible option for those finding it difficult to find a college that meets their needs to complete a Bachelors degree. To earn a Bachelors (ALB) at HES, one needs to complete 4 classes in person. Under graduate courses currently cost ~$950 each. Generally speaking admissions into a degree program is based on successful completion of three courses (see their website for details). I wish you the nest of luck on completing your degree and your pursuit of law school.
