As an internet based school, an attempt was made to replicate the Socratic method on-line. Class sizes are generally small after the first year with professors highly accessible. The pace was somewhat flexible. Video recorded lecture with dynamic and engaging professors were excellent.Quality of Life
The school is on-line so this question is not applicable, except that every attempt was made to create an open and engaging virtual learning environment.Admissions

Despite being an Internet based program, the academics tracks closely to traditional programs. Very practical in focus, primarily case reading and analysis, as any traditional program. Uses tradtional teaching methods adapted to Web. The flexibility provided by an Internet program opens the opporuntity to those whose responsibilities preclude traditional schools.Quality of Life

It is a distance learning law school, so this doesn't really apply.Admissions
First I spoke with an admissions counselor and completed a critical thinking test. I heard that I scored high enough on the test to be considered for admission and was invited to submit an application. I submitted an application packet which included questions about my educational background, experience with online learning and online classes, a personal statement, and letters of reference. I also submitted transcripts from all colleges and universities I had previously attended. I was invited to fill out a financial aid packet, but I decided not to.Level
Excellent classes with lots of interactivity between students and professor. Professors were all excellent instructors, and always available to consult with students. Grading was tough but fair. The courses were more structured than at a brick and morter school, with regular feedback providing students with evaluations of their performance and understanding of the law. The online environment created by Concord Law School enhanced the learning experience.Quality of Life
