Getting you into a school of your choice is the benefit.  And you also get credit.  I would say one of the biggest benefits is the networking.  There are thousands of CLEO alumni.  Including judges, ceo's, sports agents etc....

but what law schools does it get you into? the top 20?

I doubt many schools accept credit transfers.

On the application, they ask you for your top 8 choices.  They will than get in contacts with those schools. Of course someone with a 150 lsat and 3.0 gpa won't get into a top 20, but somebody who is borderline close can gain an advantage with CLEO.

Do you think they would let me change my top choices?

Still think 2 grand is a lot of money.

Perhaps, I am mistaken.  But from my understanding CLEO has relationships with universities mainly in the second tier.  The Truth, they most likely would not facilitate your admittance to the schools you have listed as your top choice.  I could be wrong.

You were already admitted to Alabama.  Unless CLEO is known to prepare people very well for first year of LS (that too is debatable from what I have heard), use the 2k to go on vacation and buy lots of business suits.

you might be right. I sent in my deposit before I heard from any schools. Now I have been accepted into 2 tier 1 schools. one of them offered me $$$. I don't know if it's worth the money. If they could get me into Cornell I would pay the rest.

How does one go about signing up for the CLEO program? What LS have the program? Any information would be helpful.
