i just found out about this forum and need some help figure out how to finish my BA so i can enter law school in about a year.
i have currently 52 credits from a community college and 12 credits from a french clep  total of 64. ( got these credits 10 years ago...)
there are no prerequisites for law school they will accept any BA.
i need to know what is the fastest and cheapest way to finish.
from what i read, it looks like excelsior is the way to go but i m open to any suggestions.
i will prefer taking test (cleps) than attending class or take online classes.

Any advise?
Thank you in advance

Apply to both.  Excelsior College BS in Liberal Arts is still the most flexible.  You will need to take more DSST exams for UL credits.  Both colleges will review you differently.  I applied to all three in 2017 myself.

Every one of us has different credits and backgrounds.  All three of the Big 3 will evaluate YOUR credits differently.  You will never really know how close you are until they evaluate your transcripts.  I applied to all 3.  My same credits was needing 27 more to do at TESU or only 4 at Excelsior College to finish a degree.  Every story will be different.

(I needed all the previous tests to be able to take Social Studies & History. They could be taken in any order, although I would recommend starting with Sociology and then Psychology. As Macro & Micro are harder exams, I would recommend taking them after the two History exams.)
