I am debating my acceptance b/c of my long commute and recent change in circumstances that mean I am unable to move closer to campus so could probably only manage it if was not a M-F situation (I have young kids). Thank you in advance for your time.
You are an excellent candidate for the PLEAS program at SW (part time Day). Your first semester you would take Contracts I (T,F) and Criminal Law (T,Th). Then you have legal writing, which is offered at different times (meets twice a week). It is definitely possible for you only to be at school four days a week. Three days might be possible, but you would have to work with the administration so they place you in a writing class that doesn't require you to come in on either Monday or Wednesday (I'm not sure a class exists).
I'm fairly certain a full time schedule is always M-F. But for someone with young kids, I recommend you do PLEAS, especially if you don't have an exceptional amount of help.
