Appalachian / Would you recommend Appalachian?
« on: April 18, 2008, 10:14:01 PM »
I just got accepted to Appalachian and was hoping to get the scoop from current and/or former students?

How is it living in Grundy, especially for families?
Would you recommend going there?
What did you like/dislike?


Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / FAMILY VS LAW SCHOOL
« on: April 18, 2008, 10:02:05 PM »
How is everyone else wrestling with balancing family needs and deciding to go to law school?

I was accepted this past week to my first school and honestly never thought that I would ever have the opportunity to go to law school. I am very excited but want to make sure I am doing the right thing for my family.

I already have a secure career for which my family and I moved 3 years ago for, as I am the main providor in our household. In order for me to go to school we would have to pack up, sell the house, and move again. I have a very supportive wife but I am mainly concerned about the impact on our sons, ages 7 & 8 who have begun to get settled in here and are doing really well.

I am also unsure as to how we will make ends meet for 3 years while living off of loans and piling up debt. Is there anyone else having the same difficulties and how are you dealing with your situation?

Thanks for the support.
