Law schools will not consider any grades after you earn your first bachelor's degree. Your GPA for law school applications is already set in stone.

Looks interesting however I don't think I'd pursue it. I would never survive calculus for one thing. The credit hour cost is also way more than the local business school... and I'm not in a position to pay that. Plus, I won't qualify for grants or student loans right now so everything is out of pocket. I *might* be able to swing a term at WGU in a few months but that depends on not having any major unexpected expenses come up... which I don't have the best luck with. Right now it's major vehicle issues that are probably going to put WGU out of reach for at least 4-5 months.

Law schools will not consider any grades after you earn your first bachelor's degree. Your GPA for law school applications is already set in stone.

LSAC won't use the grades to calculate their admission GPA to send to applied schools, but having a grad degree/additional degrees can definitely be a factor in admissions, even if the GPA isn't being considered.

That's true (however, from everything I've read, the effect will be very minimal); however, that's a benefit of both Walden and WGU, so the potential of getting a shiny GPA from Walden vs no GPA from WGU for law school purposes isn't a good reason to choose Walden over WGU

Exactly, and this is what I am banking on. I didn't have family support at all during undergrad and at the beginning I was working way too much to be able to afford to be there... which affected my college experience in numerous ways.
