One specialized exam is the patent bar. If your undergraduate work included any STEM subject courses, this bar exam might help. In any case, though, any government job you apply for will not be a slam dunk. Just check out the website of any government agency. They want you to know more than the people that already work there. Heck, I trained and took the VITA exams. They were tedious and the passing score was 80. And, this was for a volunteer, part time position for the IRS. I passed the exams that took me many hours to complete and I only work 3 hours a week; until April 16th.
I feel sorry for the OP, but asking the same question repeatedly obviously isn't producing the information she(?) needs. If there is some reason that the OP is ineligible for the bar it would be best just to be up front about it. The mediator suggestion might work in some states, and could be a viable option.
I am not really sure who u are referring to as "the poster", but ive stated my situation and if you want to believe it you can, if not then don't. There are millions of people that come on to this site with questions and to make an assumption I am "this poster" or whoever you want to believe I am is not worth my time. I went to law school but do not want to practice like a lot of people out there due to various reasons. I just wanted to know what my options were. Thanks.
Hi Sollicitus:Yes. I am networking, by volunteering. After I pass the CLA exam, I will apply to the IRS, SEC, and SSA. I was in the Air Force and intend to sell the military time I spent and retire with a government pension.
I seem to have terrible financial karma: I had to leave Mercer Law School in 1988 when I did not maintain the required A average to keep a full scholarship, because I did not have enough money to pay on my own. I did not have enough money to fly to California to retake the FYLSE in 2009. I was accepted to a law school in 2010, but I could not come up with the money to move to Tennessee. I could not enroll in Concord's EJD program in 2011 because the financial aide officer there determined that I only have $8000 in federal loans available to me. I could not afford to come up with Mid Atlantic's $100.00 per module JD program because I received an untimely cut in pay. So, I had to discontinue studying with that school. The University of Leiden has just start charging fees to enroll in its external LLD program.The Blackstone paralegal program is one of the least expensive online programs that made me eligible to sit for the CLA exam. I paid 59.00 down and 59.00 a month. However, I have found that I have had to put in many, many more study hours beyond what the school offers so that I can pass the CLA exam the first time. I have been studying for that test for 18 months now. I think I will be ready to take the exam in September of this year.I was successful with the VITA exams because the online training was free.I do have a degree in accounting from Devry University; another one in languages from Hunter College; and a masters degree in social work from NYU. I left the Air Force as a captain.
