Bachelor Degree from Devry????
« on: July 13, 2006, 10:02:01 PM »
First, is Devry any better than community college?  Can one with a Bachelor degree from Devery apply to law school?

Hi there!

check with http://www.abanet.org/


and the state bar where you'd like to attend law school.

ABA accredited law schools meet those criterias.

hopefully this helps. also, i have NO idea how devry would compare to a community college. you should weigh the options...ask a LOT of questions to the schools where you're doing your undergrad.

ps: i do know that in some states you can become an attorney without a law degree perse. HOWEVER states that allow this are few and far in between. AND, it's really the VERy, very, very small majority that do this...like 1 in a million.

there was something that i read one time that someone attended Harvard, without an undergrad degree all together because the person was proven to be a succesful professional, who was capable of succeeding in law school. ...

also, for example: In California, all you need to do is pass the CA bar exam!

there are many, many of ways of being an attorney. don't focus on the fact that you have a degree from devry (i'm assuming you have or are thinking about persuing a degree from this school). focus on what you'd like to accomplish.

most people who attend devry want a career in something that's very "trade" related. like being a paralegal. they're not looking for a doctorate degree (a JD is a doctorate degree). however, nothing is impossible!

I assume DeVry would have to have a reputable accreditation whereby most of the credits you took there would be transferrable to other institutions. In addition, your bachelor's degree would probably need to have a comparable amount of credit hours to other bachelor's degrees.
