Perhaps someone has experience with this issue..
Does a University of phoenix undergraduate degree stand up as a "Valid" degree on law school applications in comparison to other traditional state and private colleges?

I can't answer that personally my assumption is to say not quite (compare a highschool dipola VS GED in most people's eyes) But based on previous posts of those in that situation they have come acrossed problems. Look in previous posts and someone mentions either a degree from University of Phoenix or another local university as opposed to a state university (like UA, NAU, ASU)

As Derrick stated, most LS don't even consider your Grad studies...

Unfortunately for myself, I attended UoP as an undergrad. So applying to a TT LS, assuming a 160+ LSAT and a progressive GPA (3.2 to 3.9 at graduation), I may have a LONGSHOT at best, especially with the increasing amount of ls apps.

So if there are any UoP alumni who have been accepted to a TT LS, pls share your experiences.

This quote is an example of  whole thread that deals with your issue on this forum (although the thread begins with U of P masters work it directly correlated undergad U of P work as well.
Does this help ya?
