Not sure what to say other than don't. Many T1 graduates are having trouble getting jobs, not to mention the environment for T3/T4 students. Students from online schools will have trouble sitting for the bar and passing the bar, and even if they manage all that they still won't be hired. Don't attend an online school if you plan to practice law. Online schools make sense to people who want some legal background and never intend to practice law (or perhaps people with guaranteed jobs). To most of the population, online schools are a big mistake.

If nothing else, it'll def prepare you for a career of surfing job postings on the web in your underpants.

Doing both. I figure that if I don't make top 10% at the old 'brick and mortar,' I've got a good shot at making it at the online. If I fail to make top 10% twice, then I can move on from law school twice as fast. If I don't fail, then resume will read: "top 10%, brick and mortar." Consider doing both OP.
