I'm a (single) parent of two young children, and I'm about to start law school. However, I went through undergrad as a non-trad (I just graduated in May), and so I feel like I may be more prepared for the type of study schedule v. parental commitments dilemmas that will inevitably crop up. Also, I chose a school close to my family so they can help out. Another thing you should think of is how competitive the school is. I chose the least competitive of the two schools in the area where I wanted to be. If I were you, I'd go and visit Az. State and see what the students have to say about the atmosphere and the amount of time each day they put in. I bet if you contacted admissions they may pass your email along to one of their students who is also a parent. From what I've found, the admissions staff are always willing to help you out. They do want you at their school, after all!
