Well, life has been insane lately, but there’s some progress in the school department.
I have been accepted to Southwestern Law School’s traditional part-time evening program, so I’m pretty excited about that! There has been a lot of stress in my life over the last 10 months and my LSAT scores really left something to be desired, so getting into any law school was a big relief to me.
Most exciting is that Southwestern invited me to interview for their accelerated two year law program called SCALE. The SCALE program uses a modified curriculum on a quarter system opposed to the traditional full-time and part-time programs, which are semester based. Though faster paced and with more required classes (plus a mandatory externship), SCALE seems to prepare students for the bar and lawyering just as well as the other options.
This morning I interviewed with a school representative to discuss the SCALE program, which I think went very well. My application needs to go through two more steps, so we’ll see how it goes; initially I wasn’t interested in the program at all, but if I get in I think I may do it. Anyone have any thoughts?
