I will not speak to the part-time versus full-time issue. But: I am a law professor. I once taught at Hamline. Given the non-issues you have noted in your message, I would consider the fact that Hamline is very strong in ADR, the area you suggest interests you. Although your views may change (many students come to law school with no subject matter interest, and many others who change their mind in law school), given your interest in ADR, Hamline would make the most sense. Good luck. And, one other piece of "wisdom": Wherever you go, don't look back. That is, don't starting asking yourself if you made the right decision. Go forward, don't ponder the imponderable.
