Beach Bum.  My family moved 7 hours from our home town for law school.  We rented our house to a family friend and my husband was able to find a job right away.  Everything just sort of fell into place, which made me believe that it was the right choice.  We have all adjusted, but miss our family back home!

I don't know if the original poster still reads this forum or not.  BUT...I just finished my first year of law school and want to encourage all "non-traditionals" to give it a try.  I wound up in the top 8% of my class and am 33 with twin boys.  You can't think that life (kids, house, etc.) will hold you back.  I believe non-traditionals have an advantage simply because the non-traditionals appreciate the experience and understand the dedication required.  If law school is your dream, go for it, work hard, and don't let fear of failure hold you back!

I know, in Texas at least, that salaries for new associates are increasing at the mid to large size firm.  At the firm I worked for, the salary for a brand new associate was raised last year from $100K to $120K.  That does not sound so bad to me.

I relocated to Lubbock on Memorial Day.  Lubbock is ok.  I am so happy to wake up to 56 degree mornings.  Yesterday, it was 11 am and 67 degrees.  Very unlike San Antonio's morning saunas.  Also everyone here is really friendly.  My neighbors already came over and introduced themselves.

I recently applied for a private loan from Chase.  I jumped through all of the hoops, sent in the forms, and received an e-mail this morning stating that my loan was denied.  I called and they told me that the school was not on their list of "approved schools."  I called the school and they told me that they do not "allow" students to take private loans because they know the students take more than the cost of tuition.  Very frustrating, because I am a single mother and the COA is low at my school. Hope this is not the case for you Alphadog.

...just an observation...all other factors being equal, Texas Wesleyan offers way better sholarships than St. Mary's.
