I think they are all only in California though, but I might be wrong. California is a unique state and has so many freaking people that room for lawyers exists and if you can pass the bar here you are doing alright. I believe it is the hardest one of all 50 states and if you can pass it by going to school through the mail then you are a pretty capable person. I believe the pass rate for a lot of CBA/online schools is extremely low though.
The cost is ridiculous, but that is higher education. You have to go to college and often grad school just to have a shot at a job. When you are 18 and 23 years old there is not much you can do so the schools in every field take advantage and just jack up prices. There is nothing you can do about it either. My school could jack up tuition 10k tomorrow and there is little I could do about it.
