I'm sort of in the same boat!  I have a toddler, under two, and I even want another baby AND be a law student, too!  I know it's difficult, but I'm sure it's doable.  I'm new to this board, too, and it's great to hear all this advice, support and shared thoughts.

Thank you for all the positive, frank replies.  I will look into deferrals for sure. 

One other question, if for some reason the school doesn't grant the deferral, and I have to reapply the next year, does that hurt my chances of getting in again?  Should I retake the LSAT?  I'm assuming I would need to provide all new personal statements and such?

I haven't really decided yet.  I guess that matters, right?  I'm assuming corporate is more competitive?

Does anyone know what the job perspective is like for someone who will be in his late 30's when graduating law school?  Are there any differences between being in your 20's, 30's, 40's or 50's as far as landing a job goes?

I have a feeling that wanting to have a baby and asking the law school to wait for me for 1 year wouldn't be that tempting for the law school. 

Also, I just don't know how law school will be.  I hear about how stressful law school is, especially the first year.  I have a family and am unsure how law school will affect my family life.  Will I have time for them?  Will I do well in school? 

Thank you all for your advice. :)

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Law school and pregnant?

I'm planning on going to law school this fall and have a child already, under 2 years old.  I want to have another baby, close enough in age for the two to play and grow up together.  But another reason why I want to have a baby soon is because I'm already 34 and I know my clock is ticking.  However, I truly want to go to law school and do well.  So, my question is, has anyone had a baby during law school and have any advice?  Any advice would be helpful.
