Hastings has some kind of a special admission programm for nontrads - Legal Ed. Opportunity Prog. (LEOP). The admission criteria is less demanding and those special ads get small group sessions, practice exams, etc. Is it worth applying under that program?

It's the same degree, same courses, same proffessors...I know the one at seattle u allows those students to take one class in the summer...so when fall starts, they have one less class than everybody else and more time to study. They also provide study groups and mandatory mentoring..

I don't think anyone outside of the LEOP program even knows who is a LEOP student.  I sure don't know who the LEOPers are in my section, if there are any at all.  And to answer your question, no, you get the same diploma as the first and last ranked  person that graduates.  Go for it.
