Just a short note – beware of the advice you find online.
Some discussion boards are very useful but others are loaded with wrong information. If you see a statistic or a rumor that concerns you, contact people at the school for reference. You can usually call or e-mail most law schools for statistical information, Widener Law’s Admission office holds information about bar exam rates, employment statistics and medians. We will gladly share our findings or discuss any reservations.
You can usually request a student or alumni contact as well. If you are uneasy about going through the Admissions office then visit a law school and talk to the students. They will rarely misguide you.
