The drawback is Richmond, not the 2-year JD

Is Richmond really that bad?? :shock: I'm waiting for some other better schools, Richmond is the first one accepts me. Just wondering if I have to choose Richmond, will it be any difference between me and other regular 3-year J.Ds when it comes to job searching?

How much will it cost to attend (include tuition + cost of living + interest)?
How will you be financing?
What are your career goals?
Where, geographically, do you want to practice?
LSAT score/s and number of times taken?

Whether you should attend will depend on the answers to these questions.

Congrates and wish you luck!
I'm waiting for ASU's reply, also the 2-year program. Still hoping to know the difference comparing to regular JD if there's any.
