Good luck to everyone still making decisions! If I can help out with info on UM or the city of Miami, let me know!

wow, congrats to all the newlyweds and soon-to-be newlyweds!
ive been married for almost a year and a half, the husband is in his first yr of med school and being that he is a baby, and i am anal when it comes to being clean and organized, all the house responsbilities fell on me. which was fine this year, when i was working PT and doing LS apps.
next year i will be a 1L, he will be in 2nd year med school...i feel like i will have to hire someone to cook clean and do the laundry and dishes! i cannot imagine doing all that plus law school right now.
i was tryin to convince my husband that this year would be a good time to have a baby, but now im really reconsidering that statement.
Have you (or anyone else on the board) known someone who has had a baby during law school? How's that work out? Is it horrible, especially with the stress and money issues of being a student?
I know it's still the same school it was yesterday, but I'm still a little bummed about the drop. I really wanted to go to Miami, not only because it is a good school, but also because this is where my whole life is and where I plan to practice. I think why the drop is hitting so hard is because I also didn't receive a scholarship even though my numbers are solid (I applied late). I just can't stand the thought of paying full tuition. I really do hope that the numbers start to climb up again.
P.S. I'm going to ASD...I hope I fall in love...
It seems like all the worker-bees on this thread are good at saving, and are working to have a bunch of savings going into 1L. Am I the only one trying to work off my debt, simply so that I can take on much much more during law school
I've been agonizing over this very topic for the past month. I absolutely HATE working at the firm I've been at since last July and have gotten enough time in that I can still leave on good terms. I'm actually considering taking a more flexible, lower-paying, no benefits job at the zoo or a country club from April - July. I feel like some time away from the legal world and more days off is a break that I need desperately before starting school. However, the pay is good here and the health insurance is important so I'm trying to talk myself out of leaving. I would stay and just leave in mid-June when my lease is up and move to my new city (Pittsburgh or Columbia), but once I hit a year in mid-July I get two weeks paid vacation that could go towards a laptop or the cruise my SO and I want to take....happiness now or money later???
