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.

Just an update. I was admitted to UoP and will be doing a term there to transfer credits back to Walden. I don't think I am going to be able to do both concentrations due to finances, but I am going to milk the Tempo program for all the credits that I can before switching. I want to do the social entrepreneurship concentration, but I am going to see if they will let me use the following electives to create a sort of hybrid between healthcare management and social entrepreneurship:

- Law, Ethics, and Policy in Healthcare Administration (WMBA 6604/MMHA 6300)
- Improving Healthcare Performance Through Social Entrepreneurship (MMHA 6682) - This will depend on if they let me take it from their MMHA Tempo program
- Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation: A Global Perspective (WMBA 6880) - probably will transfer in from somewhere. Any suggestions?

This term I will be doing the following courses at UoP:
- BUS 5110 Managerial Accounting
- BUS 5111 Financial Management


Next term at UoP I plan to take:
- BUS 5114: Management Information Systems and Technology
- BUS 5211 Managing in the Global Economy

I have this mapped out in a spreadsheet by term, course delivery method, and cost. If I can swing this my total to complete the MBA will be about $6,851, a little over $1k of that being for taking the social entrepreneurship course somewhere else and transferring it since Walden is $995/cr for grad studies. I am still happy with that cost. I think with all my health issues I could not have completed a WGU MBA in a single term, and two terms at WGU would be $7,600. This method I feel less rushed and still get electives I think will be useful.

I still would like to take a course on business feasibility and one on new venture creation, but I think I can do that through a MOOC or as an elective for the JD program in the future.
