How worried are you about the cost? Is the tuition rate a factor if you end up having to pay it all out of pocket? If cost is an issue, I'd definitely broaden your scope when looking at potential options.

Wintertime, make sure you look into government assistance for adult education. Sorry if this is getting too personal, but are you single? Your ability to get government money for school is vastly different if you are a single mother.

Curious to know, what has your current employer offered in the way of tuition assistance? Is there a contract that details your responsibility?

Make sure you don't sacrifice your time with your kids. This is always the one thing that people regret after looking back at a successful career. So if you do decide to take the plunge, make sure you are still prioritizing.

It's just like Maine to be biased in favor of Massachusetts. Maine should be more self-confident and less insecure about the popularity of its cooler neighbors.

True. Obviously there's some psychological reason for wanting to avoid the courtroom, which is fine. But being picky about other forms of work related to law probably won't help.

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: Regent Law

I've heard some good things about Regent Law from a former student, but they have a pretty strong religious side to them and appreciated the atmosphere. As far as the actual academic side of things, it seemed pretty comparable in course work.

I've actually heard of a friend of mine in high school that took this route. I haven't heard of the potential complications, but I'm sure the logistics would be a little more detailed than your original post implies. However, it is intriguing for anyone interested enough in being a little adventurous in their plan of study.


My only advice would be to do all you can to protect your family time. If you find that being away that much is starting to take it's toll on your kids than don't be afraid to take a semester off in the process. If you can afford to go ahead and quit your job, then that would probably afford you more of an opportunity to work out the logistics. Good Luck to you!
