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.
