Yeah, he has offered to let me live with him.  I don't know much more that he can do since he'll barely be making it as well.  My plan is to go to law school in 2010, so I will work and prepare up until I begin class. 

Have you been in a similar situation?  I am just trying to see how others have done.

I am in a very complex situation.  I come from a backwards state that I wish to move out of some day, but have to save up first adn of course for law school itself.  I am dating someone who is beginning med school in the fall and has chosen to go to school in Boston, which is very, very far away.  I have always wanted to leave the state, so this can be a good opportunity.  However, I know that medical school and law school are extremely intense.  I really love this person, and the person wants me to come with and have also told me that they love me.  I am just freaking out because I don't want to lose the person I am with, though odds are not great for people like us to stay together.

  The person I am dating got accepted into BU and received good financial aid and it was a wonderful thing to them because they thought that they wouldn't be able to go to a nice institution like that one.  I am just worried as hell right now what to do.  I am worried of all the usual things in relationships, but now add in a move and both of us going to professional school and this just makes it a real headache. 

Lots of people are telling me to just go for it, but to be prepared since Boston is an expensive city.  Others are saying that I should just cool it because our careers are complicated and may not allow relationships in our educations as well as other things.  Plus, I am 24 and never lived on my own before and my parents are a bit old fashioned.  I know that they will probably not like it, plus they wouldn't be able to help me if I ever got in financial trouble since they are barely making it themselves. I just don't know if I can find another person like them and it will hurt like nothing ever before to lose them.  I know that long distance relationships are tough to make work, even if one does plan to be with the other in a few months.

Jobwise, it has been s struggle for me to get one where I live.  One place in Boston offered me a job but I wouldn't be able to take it because they would want me to move right away and the pay isn't good.  It has been mroe than I am getting out here though. 

This is just driving me crazy because I want to go to law school, but I also want to be with this person, but I wonder if all this is compatible.  Can anyone enlighten?

Law School Admissions / Re: Masters

I am having a similar thing. 

I am going to be going in with a Masters' in City and Metro Planning with a GPA around 3.4.  My undergrad wasn't as good. I am retaking a few of those classes with the hope of making my records look better.  My question here is would they look at both grades, or just the better of the two for the classes that I retook?  Also, would my completed Masters have any help on my record?  I read from the last posts that it may help with scholarships, but I am curious to see if maybe there is anythign else I should know.  I am planning on taking the LSAT in September adn entering school the fall of 2010.  So, anything is good to know.
