Working full time and going to law school part time?

Postby Fujin11 » Sun Jul 29, 2012 8:59 pm

Is it doable or even a good idea? Are there distinct advantages and disadvantages to this path come OCI time?

I am doing it. It's tough but I wanted to limit my debt. As far as oci goes, some firms shy away from PT students, Other love them. At the end it all comes down to grades.

Any school that has a part-time program is not worth it in and of itself, so no, it's not a good idea.

It could be worth it at GULC. And Fordham as well, depending on the circumstance.

I didn't know either had part-time programs. Those would make sense for a lot of people. I've only heard of part-time programs being at TT schools.
