For LSAT study - I would buy a whole bunch of real tests and do as many as you can. I think I did about 20 or so - all under "real" test conditions.
I am also nontraditional with two young kids. From what I've been told, UGPA matters but if you have a stong LSAT it matters less. Strong being 170+ and maybe a little higher if you are a male. Unless your work experience includes curing cancer, winning the nobel prize, etc. I would definitely write an addendum as to why law school. Don't waste your PS on that topic. Make sure your recs are strong and really encourage your recommenders to write about things that demonstrate your intellectual aptitude. If you are applying to Yale you may want to hunt down an old professor of a class you did well in to see if he can write you anything.
