Landrover06,I absolutely agree with your points 1, especially 2, 4,5,6, especially 7 and 9. I have over 15 years of IT background (WAN and technical support mostly) and I want to somehow incorporate that knowlege with my law degree.I think I am at peace with my decision of going to an CBA school. I simply do not have time to do intensive studying for the Dec 2 LSAT and I really do not want to incur at $100K debt from an ABA school.Are you in Northern CA? What school do you attend? It would be great if you are attending the school I have applied. PM to me the name of the school that you attend if you like. It is comforting to know there is someone out there like me taking the CBA route. It would be nice to go with an ABA and have the benefit of the prestige the school name could offer me. But, it is not a guarantee that I wll land a great job after I pass the bar. As I said before, by the time I take the bar I will be 50 years old and still have another 6 years to work at my current job before I can "retire" from my State of CA job.If God graces me with many more years of good health I would like to practice law well into my 60's.
